Nalini Nadkarni is a renowned ecologist who climbs trees in the rainforest to study “what grows back” after an ecological disturbance. After nearly dying in a fall on a research climb and making a miraculous recovery, Nalini begins to explore a new research subject: herself. Now, Nalini is doing the work of untangling the roots of her past to understand how they impacted her life’s course. In an attempt to heal, she revisits the site of her fall in Washington State, where her past, present and future converge.
