Jane, a bookish introvert, who loses her job as a librarian and spirals downward into depression. The library and all of its books gave her life meaning. Jane contemplates suicide and decides to see something beautiful before she dies, traveling to tropical, picturesque Costa Rica. Once there she meets a younger man named Juan, a charming, charismatic tour guide who makes his living off the many single female tourists who come to town. Together, they embark on an adventure into the heart of Costa Rica. The awkward pair experience a transformational journey where Juan reads his first book and Jane comes to appreciate what "Pura Vida" has to offer in a way that may change her plans to "end it all" in paradise.
