The novel follows Aganetha Smart, a pioneering athlete who captured world attention during the 1928 Olympics. Now, at the age of 104, alone, and in a nursing home, she seems forgotten by history. But for the competitive and ambitious Aganetha, life remains present and unfinished in her mind. When her quiet routine is disturbed by two strangers, the past rattles up to meet them all.
