Risking it all.
Miriam is forty and frustrated. In an attempt to enhance her living-just-to-breathe life she joins some neighbours protesting a highway bypass that will destroy Eagleridge Bluffs. Not only are the Bluffs her special sanctuary, they’re also the beautiful home of rare and endangered plants and animals.
The protest gains the support of environmental organizations including the attention of a group of eco-radicals lead by an enigmatic younger man named Zaahir.
Miriam is mesmerized by this charismatic leader and sees him as someone that can save her as well as the Bluffs. But is Zaahir just using Miriam to help him further his radical political agenda?
As legal channels fail and civil disobedience falters, Miriam is seduced into the murky world of eco-terrorism.
Two passionate opponents, the antithesis of each other are about to clash over the future of a grove of Ancient Old Growth Forest on a secluded island.
Mad Maggie is a love story between two disparate characters, a brilliant though somewhat anal retentive corporate lawyer who's personal and career mantra is "the will to power", and a free, uninhibited spirit who practices natural healing on a secluded island in the wilderness. It's a story about protecting wild things and wild places as well as the devastating effects of mental illness and the stigma society still inflicts on those effected.
It's a story about compromise, tolerance and understanding and how these feelings spring from love and are nurtured by it. It's about mystery, secrets and power that abounds in nature and within us.
