Eat Pray Love is the story of Liz Gilbert (Julia Roberts), a professional writer who thought she had everything she wanted in life: a home, a husband and a successful career. Unfulfilled and now newly divorced, she finds herself standing at a crossroads confused about what is important to her and that her life needs to go in a different direction. Realizing that she is her biggest problem, she needs to find herself again.
Daring to step out of her comfort zone and risking everything to change her life, Liz embarks on a journey around the world that becomes a quest of self-discovery. Partly based on earlier foretelling’s of a Balinese medicine man, Liz maps out her next year which will be spent in three places.
Her first destination is Italy where she hopes to learn Italian and re-discover the true pleasure of nourishment by eating. After Italy she plans to go to India and live at an ashram to learn and achieve some spiritual peace and balance in her life. After India she plans to wrap up her quest by returning to Bali in Indonesia to reconnect with Ketut Liyer (Hadi Subiyanto) the medicine man she met before to see if he can provide any more insights into her life.
Although she sticks to her geographic plan, she often experiences things along the way she didn’t expect. But everything she worked so hard for to achieve that much needed balance in life over the years may be lost by the end of her stay in Indonesia.
