Celine Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Celine has led an emotionally difficult life. An orphan when she inherited the bulk of her adoptive father's estate, it incurred the deep displeasure of her erstwhile stepmother. Thinking to make things right with her, she renounced part of her inheritance, leading her gold-digging boyfriend to reject her. Feeling worthless, abandoned and alone, Celine is suicidal. When an overdose and near drowning leave her near death, she winds up on the ward where Genevieve works as a nurse. Breaking all kinds of rules, the nurse gets involved with Celine's life and has a positive effect on her, teaching her yoga and generally cheering her up. As Celine recovers her stability, a new influence enters the scene when Celine begins to have mystical experiences. Some critics were distressed that the mystical element became the main focus of the movie, while others were intrigued by it. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
