On her seventeenth birthday, Ernestine Ashworth yearns for an extraordinary life. In a flash, she’s 18, then 40, then 73 and with the passing of each year her dreams and her aspirations are transformed by the shifting tides of her changing world. Over the course of 84 birthdays, we experience the impossible, heartbreaking, joyful wonder of what makes up a life.
