Here is Cheryl, a tightly wound, vulnerable woman who lives alone, with a perpetual lump in her throat. She is haunted by a baby boy she met when she was six, who sometimes recurs as other peoples' babies.

Cheryl is also obsessed with Phillip, a philandering board member at the women's self-defense nonprofit organisation where she works. She believes they've been making love for many lifetimes, though they have yet to consummate it in this one.

When Cheryl's bosses ask if their twenty-one-year-old daughter, Clee, can move into her house for a while, Cheryl's eccentrically ordered world explodes.
