A young officer returns to his base after a daring mission. The cook's assistant, a religious Holocaust survivor, is envious of him. He believes that there is a place in heaven reserved for the brave officer who endangers his life for the sake of his Jewish brethren. The officer, in the spirit of the Zionist ethos, is secular and a non-believer. At the moment, he is so hungry that, for a plate of shaksuka, he is prepared to sign a contract transferring his secured place in heaven to the cook. Some forty years later, the present time of the movie, the tables have turned - the officer, now a retired general, is on his death bed in the hospital. His son who, to his father's horror, has found religion, is in a race against time. Before his father dies, he has to find that cook's assistant who, forty years earlier, bought his place in heaven. If and when he finds him, the son has to nullify the contract. If he doesn't, his father will go to hell.

Finally, Patrick discovers in a fresh and very personal way that God is his Father and we are all His "adopted" children. "Before My First Day Began...: was written primarily to offer comfort and insight to adopted children. However, it also addresses the reality that we are all adopted into God's family.

We hope it will find it's way into church libraries, school counselor's offices, family therapists' and child psychologists' offices, and many other concerned and active organization in this area of counseling.

At a time in history when Yoga was practiced in basements and martial arts were found mainly in the movies, Taoist Internal Alchemy was not accessible to the western world. This was the time Master Mantak Chia came to America with a dream to share Taoist wisdom. Early seekers of the Tao found him in a small office in Chinatown, New York City, and the Healing Tao system was born and another bridge was formed between east and west. Over time, many in the West found Master Chia and began to help spread the teaching of the Healing Tao.
