The story unfolds against the backdrop of a dystopian world obsessed with youth. In it, the age is a carefully guarded secret and the side effect of the anti-aging vaccine is death at the age of 70. Sara (70) lives on the fringes of the society and remains one of the few who chose not to get vaccinated against ageing. One day, after misfortune strikes, she is forced to move in with her ex-husband. Inkar has remarried, and for the sake of his young wife Sara will need to pose as the man’s mother. Soon the former flames discover that the old attraction hasn’t all died, forcing suspicious Layla to try to evict the mother-in-law. Sara returns with a vengeance – against the rules she discloses her ex-husband’s age in order to be at peace with herself, Inkar and their past, and to finally move on.
