“I think of my body sometimes like it’s stubborn. We’re not good friends. Like it’s a spooky hotel, and I’m a ghost haunting it. ‘Cause you don’t live in a hotel, you just pass through.”
When Daphne is diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Insufficiency at the age of nineteen, her sister Christine steps in to help in the only way she knows how: by donating her eggs. For a while, the world seems corrected. But as the years go by – and Daphne sets out on the long road of IVF – the sisters’ relationship begins to twist.
