It is 2021 in Nelson and Gloria, age 97, hasn’t long to live. Her son Craig is pushing her to move to a “retireville” but she wants to die in her own home.

On a whim, Gloria buys an extraordinary designer handbag. This purchase sets off a series of unusual events which transform Gloria’s remaining days and enable her to send a message to the future.
