Inga (Marcia Gay Harden) is a poet. She wants to buy and restore a house she is drawn to that reminds her of her childhood home, but her distant husband Hermann (Michael Gaston) sees little value in it or many of the things Inga loves. Inga realizes that many things in her life are coming full circle. In her relationship with her 8-year-old daughter (Eulala Scheel - Harden's real life daughter), Inga shares her hopes, fears, and innermost thoughts following her recovery from breast cancer. Inga is troubled by her marriage, its lack of intimacy, and her fear of her own mortality. By weaving optimism into her life's story, it is in her own writing that allows her transformation.
