To cope, she seeks the help of a witch doctor who orders her to isolate herself in a room for three days without human contact, and no consumption of alcohol or cigarettes, and only a can of carnation milk to keep her company. She explores her life, and is propelled forward by the music of her career to seek the peace that she desire
