WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE RAINBOW EXPLODES?
The life of Marine Captain Jewel Dubuclet is thrust into shambles when on routine patrol in Afghanistan her Humvee trips an IED wire. The result is death and devastating casualties for her men, and for Jewel, the loss of her right leg. She is airlifted to safety and a state-of-the-art rehabilitation hospital, but her recovery is stalled. Feelings of shame, guilt, and a loss of her physical identity thrust her into depression. Assisted by a skillful psychologist, who connects the suffering captain to the valor of an historic warrior Queen, and the tenacity of her driving physical trainer, Jewel gradually accepts her new normal and the unforeseen promise of love it brings.
