Based on the infamous novelist Eve Langley, Ava Langdon is an eccentric outcast solely preoccupied with her passion for words. Little does Ava know, she does not have long to live. Each day she wakes obsessed with finding the perfect sentence, the perfect description. She dons men's clothing and inspires confusion with her penchant for slipping snippets of French into conversation. From submitting a manuscript, to getting hit by a ute, to meeting with her estranged son, Ava's last days encapsulate the freedom of eccentricity and the sadness of isolation.
