After gaining luck on a few film sets, she meets a guy who she first assumes is the love of her life, only to find herself in an emotionally abusive relationship. They quickly get married six months later, and at this point Karina begins struggling with depression, anxiety, and body image. Finally making it out of a messy breakup, she then tries to rebuild her life by putting the focus back to her career and starting a small business, only to later end up homeless. Unsure about what to do next- go back home or try one more time in Toronto, she leaves it to fate and how the rest of the story unfolds is proof magic can happen in real life.
