After witnessing the muse for her novels become a father with another woman, Dallie Ago, a published author and high-powered Engineer, attempts to conclude if her life is best lived becoming a mother, or living a story as dramatic as those in her books. Moving from New York to London for work, Dallie travels to Iceland, Lebanon, France, and Serbia, visiting clients and discovering different outlooks on life while balancing a severe, chronic illness, which also provides Dallie with an unusual perspective on the body and time. During her journey, she learns to navigate corporate injustices, cultural differences and her own mortality.
