Three experts: a physician, a psychologist, and a spiritually oriented clinical counselor intertwine their experiences and knowledge to address the "whole you". They show that there is no gap between physical, mental, and spirital aspects of health; all aspects are interrelated and it's powerfully helpful to see this way.

Frantic, he rushes through Vancouver's Chinatown and behind a nightclub, where he sees Miss Val, a long-time burlesque dancer.
