Following his wife Carmen's funeral, chronicled so movingly in Love Life , Dan tries to pick up the pieces. He is now the sole parent of little Luna. But inevitably, in his grief, he goes right off the rails. His friends worry for him and for Luna. His hedonism becomes self-destructive, and deep down he knows it's better to have Luna stay with friends than for her to witness his decline. He sells his share of the business to his partner and goes on a drug-addled holiday to Ibiza, drowning himself in the party scene. Dan reaches rock bottom and realizes he can't go on like this. His friends advise him to go on a long trip, taking Luna with him, and to try and take stock of his life. He decides to take Luna to Australia, via Bali and Thailand. There, as they travel across the continent, they begin to tentatively establish a new relationship and Dan finally comes to realize what it is he wants and needs in his life.
