Jenny is in her mid '40s when she suffers an aneurysm of the brain while vacuuming. She is rushed to hospital and remains in a coma for some time. As she drifts in and out of consciousness, her family wrestle with old conflicts and difficulties which are thrown into sharp relief by the sudden illness of this pivotal person in each of their lives. Meanwhile Jenny, struggling between life and death, embarks on an emotional journey that forces her to re-define her relationships with each of her family members. It is through her relationship with Kyle, her foster child, that she finds the impetus to return to her life.
