Kim Getty is an immigrant from 400 years in the future, sent back in time to live out an easier life. It's a one-way trip of difficult isolation, but in the three years since she landed, Kim has built a life that feels almost satisfying. She has a full time job, shares an apartment in Brooklyn with a roommate, and is falling in love. But when she stumbles on a teenage girl in Prospect Park who is also from the future, Kim's remade sense of self is tested. After the girl leads Kim to her long-lost husband, now 20 years older than her and maladjusted to this time, Kim's carefully designed identity begins to unravel, and she must choose between two entirely different lives. Once her secrets are exposed, the real decision is what she's willing to do to survive.
