Synopsis: In His Footsteps follows a successful entrepreneur and mother as she loses her only child of 32 years and subsequently her company where both worked.
Her emotional voyage goes from hopelessness to resilience over a six month period as she travels from London to Berlin, New York, Beverly Hills and Silicon Valley tracing her son's steps in these cities where he was an actor, writer and chef. It is a story about the transformative power of optimism and action, and ultimately, a story about hope.
By organizing impromptu restaurants in people's homes and cooking for her son's friends and strangers alike, she cooks and dances her way out of the darkness and into pockets of healing and happiness.
