Set in a global village in Costa Rica, ”A Different Life” introduces three women and tells their stories of striving, each along her own path, to achieve a new beginning. The film follows their arcs of transformation and in so doing explores a village living by codes of silence and self-enquiry, adopting indigenous traditions in the midst of a tropical forest on the shores of the Pacific.
