Nine years after a traumatic childhood incident, Cyd is sent to stay with her estranged aunt Miranda, a renowned author and intellectual, in Chicago for the summer. Cyd fills her days with sunbathing, running and an amorous dalliance with Katie, a local barista, which contrasts with Miranda’s quiet and introspective life. Initially Cyd and Miranda find themselves at odds with each other until a strong friendship develops between the pair over the course of the summer.
