Eight weeks of survivalist camping in the desert. Eight weeks to turn your life around. Yeah, right.

But, when she’s suddenly captured in a butterfly net -- and discovers Emilio’s missing wife is still alive, Citronella will have to choose between a life of lies, and Steven -- the infuriatingly-loyal male Mosquito who loves her in spite of her fainting.
