Four days ago,

On the outside,

my life seemed perfect.

Perfect boyfriend, perfect job,

Perfect peace.

But something

was always missing.

That's why I needed to find you.

To find me.

"Ahimsa,"

Which means non-Violence,

Is the foundation

of our practice.

We have the ability,

Every day,

To choose peace.

Within every posture,

Every breath,

And every moment of our lives.

That is a nice car.

What is that?

'65? '66?

'65.

They don't make 'em

like that anymore.

I know it's expensive,

but I really think

It's worth advertising

in the yoga journal.

- Okay.

- We could mention that we're donating to that orphanage.

Yeah.

Do you have any pictures

of you with the kids there?

- Yeah, I think I do.

- That's great.

And I'm still waiting on

your bio.

I know, I'm working on it.

Just keep it simple...

You're an inspiring woman.

- I guess.

- You inspire me.

Hey, honey, did you take

Your old car out today?

- Yeah, why?

- Well, you said you were gonna take your bike.

I just... Just ran

a couple of errands.

Yeah, well I wish you would

have told me,

I would have come back early.

You know, I, um...

I heard from Kathy today.

The... You know

the private investigator?

And?

And, she has an address

for Susan,

And it's 30 minutes away.

- Wow.

- Yeah.

I think I really

want to meet her.

I think that's great.

I think that's gonna be

really good for you.

Yeah, I think I'm gonna

take a few hours tomorrow,

- And just drive down there...

- Tomorrow?

Yeah.

Well, we just...

We've got so much to do.

This is gonna be very

emotional for you.

Yeah. Yeah,

you're probably right.

I should just do it

some other time.

Yeah?

Hi.

Are you Susan Adams?

Yeah.

I'm may miller.

So, what do you want?

This is gonna sound strange,

But I think you're my sister,

From my biological mother,

Her name was Jennifer Adams.

Are you...

- Who is it?

- Nobody, baby.

Yeah, there's a bar

around the corner,

I'll meet you there

in five minutes.

Want a drink?

Yeah, I'll get it.

Um, what would you like?

I'll have a vodka cranberry.

It doesn't need to be

fancy vodka,

House is fine.

Okay.

Um, i...

I brought you these.

They are these a... Amazing raw cookies,

With, uh...

Macadamia, chia seeds.

Thanks.

You might want to take

a look at that.

I'll get our drinks.

You are Susan, right?

Yeah, but call me Shiva,

even mom did.

Okay.

- Um, so...

- So, what...

Sorry, uh, you...

- You, uh... Go first.

- No, you go.

This is f*ckin' crazy.

Yeah.

I guess she never

told you about me.

No, never.

Thanks.

- Sorry.

- Thanks.

Yep.

You look just like her.

It's something about your, um...

Well, I wouldn't know

'Cause I've...

I've never seen her.

Here.

How old were you when she died?

God, that must have been hard.

- Yeah.

- Did you live with your dad after that?

Foster homes.

Didn't you have

any other family?

Yeah, my mom's parents,

but they didn't want me.

What year were you born?

'81.

F*ck, she was like 17

when she had you.

Do you think it's...

Do you think it's possible

That we have the same dad?

I doubt it.

I mean,

I never met my dad, so...

But, I don't know,

like ten years apart?

- It doesn't seem likely.

- Hmm.

- So, what do you do?

- What do you mean?

You know, for a living.

Oh, uh...

I try to make people happy.

I guess I kind of do that too.

- How?

- I teach yoga.

Huh.

What about you?

Uh, massage.

Oh.

Here, give me your hand.

Oh, look at that.

- What?

- Your lifeline.

It like totally stops

and then it starts again.

It's like you have two lives.

Okay, you hurt yourself
