When the panic over global crises threatens to engulf her, Ava embarks on a vision quest to put things in perspective.

Solastalgia is a film that lies somewhere on the boarder of drama and documentary. Essentially it is an "inner landscape documentary"—a lyrical expression of the director's internal world. It utilizes non-traditional stock and archival sources for some of its imagery, set to the formidable poetic verse of Tanya Davis (former poet laureate of Halifax), and music by Russell Louder and Philip Glass. Solastalgia places the human experience within the vast timeline of the earth, poetically evoking the idea that life has meaning with or without us.
