Ben was a heart surgeon who, after a terrible tragedy, left his job and his previous life suddenly and unexpectedly to work as a janitor at a retirement home called Heritage Gardens. Ben tries to escape the tragedy and pain of his previous life and what he lost by simplifying his life in an attempt to make his life entirely controllable. The elderly staying at Heritage Garden become his friends, and you can tell by the way he goes above and beyond his typical job duties as a janitor that he loves and cares for everyone at Heritage Garden. Ben manages to remain calm and stable despite his OCD and anxiety. That is, until his past comes back to haunt him at the very place he thought he finally found peace in, Heritage Gardens.
In the end, Ben learns that:
- We don’t always have control over every situation in our lives and it’s possible to be okay with that, instead of fighting it.
- Trust in a higher power.
- Live in the moment; don’t let past troubles keep you from experiencing life.
I’ll more than likely be reading “Prime of Life” again.
