Rosa's nerve disease is slowly killing her, until she becomes a candidate for an experimental brain transplant that gives Rosa a new lease of life. But as Rosa endures months of rehabilitation, her curiosity about the body donor, Sylvia, intensifies. Will she be able to solve the dilemma of her identity?
Eighteen-year-old Rosa's nerve disease is slowly killing her, so when a doctor from Boston chooses her as a candidate for an experimental brain transplant, she and her family move from London in search of a miracle. Sylvia - a girl from Massachusetts - is brain dead after having fallen into a frozen lake, and her parents have agreed to donate her body to give Rosa a new life. But Rosa's curiosity about Sylvia becomes a haunting obsession. After months of rehabilitation she embarks on a road trip with Joe, a boy she met in the hospital park, in an attempt to find closure and figure out who she really is.
