Lorna Brown has everything...so why does she feel so dissatisfied? The clothes, the house, the Poggenpohl kitchen do nothing to give her life meaning. The death of a friend makes her question her existence still further. Then she meets Armand, her daughter's friend, and Lorna's yearning for something different takes shape. Envying the assurance and spontaneity of her daughter and her companions, she suddenly makes a decision and abandons her easy comfort for a squat in Regent's Park. Will Lorna find there the contentment she craves?
