Shani Raviv is a struggling adolescent living in an eccentric female household in Johannesburg, South Africa. At fourteen, influenced by her clique, she gets hooked on dieting. Over the next decade, she tries to find self-worth in sex, happiness in drugs and alcohol, comfort in cutting, and above all, salvation in starving. A spiritual epiphany one night awakens her to the fearful realization that she has lost her sense of self to anorexia (Ana)— and has to decide whether to surrender and risk losing Ana to go in search of nourishment and her true self in a sober world.
