Ceana's family has everything in their lives planned out. Her parents are passionate with their jobs. They have moved to Thailand to be closer to the water since her mother is a marine biologist. Meanwhile, her sister is almost done with being a college professor and her father is a business man with his own company.
Ceana doesn't feel like she fits into her family. The Thailanese culture is so much different than the swiss culture. Along with that she doesn't want to follow any of her family member's paths. She wants to do something completely different with her life.
She feels trapped like she never has before. All these people who have mainly known each other for so long, she fells like an alien on earth, like someone who belongs elsewhere. Her family doesn't understand but, her friends and family back in Switzerland understand since they grew up together and miss each other so much.
