New story about a new Alice. She’s lost all the joy in her life. She’s estranged from her husband, alienated from her daughter and in danger of screwing up her career. Only a trip to Wonderland, where she meets some strange (and familiar) characters, can help her re-discover her inner child and restore the life that she once had.
