Ann, a woman of surprisingly well-preserved beauty, attends the funeral of a man she hasn't seen in 40 years, since the day she vanished from his life. A message from her deceased lover sends Ann on an expressionistic odyssey back through her life, which brings her face to face with herself as a beautiful six year old girl full of promise, an 18 year old young woman bent on revenge and a 30 year old woman faced with a desperate decision.
Seen at four ages (often simultaneously), Ann struggles toward an unexpected self-realization, but redemption proves possible in the form of a shocking, beautiful surprise hidden in the message from her lover's grave.
