Janet is 32 years old and her life is on hold. With her father, a retired military police colonel, terminally ill and hospitalized, she does nothing more than spend the days next to him in the hospital. While waiting for the inevitable end of this painful journey, Janet writes incessantly, sometimes on a laptop, sometimes a notebook. Throughout the days, Janet creates a police plot that helps her get in touch with her deepest fears and desires, an outlet that reveals much of what she is and how she faces this very tough situation. A story about life after the death of those we love.
