Everyone walks over Mona, yet she tries to remain standing in a world full of egos and egoists. Until one day she realizes that this is no longer possible. Life is what happens when you stop living someone else’s and start living your own. An emotionally-charged tragicomic journey of courage, forgiveness and self-discovery, Becoming Mona tells a story in three parts of Mona’s struggle to break free from the stifling constraints of a life lived in the service of other people’s egos.
