Synopsis of “Jump” by Daniella Moyles

‘The point of all this has nothing to do with finding yourself. It’s about what you can do to lose what you don’t need.’

It’s a dark rainy afternoon on Dublin’s jammed M50 motorway. The rain is hammering on the windscreen of Daniella Moyles’ car. She is 26, a highly successful radio presenter, model, and influencer, but panic is building in her head and chest, the internal state of affairs she has been trying to ignore finally spilling over into something undeniably physical. She is frozen, petrified, looks to her boyfriend and says, ‘I don’t know who or where I am.’

This day changed Daniella’s life. It derailed almost everything she had worked to achieve and set her on a new path.

Jump is the story of what happened when Daniella quit her job to backpack around the world for two years, and how freedom from the trappings of what society considers success leads to true contentment, strength, and authenticity.
