At age 60, Liam Pennywell has been fired from his teaching job at a second-rate private boys' school in Baltimore, a job below his academic training and original expectations. An unsentimental, noncontemplative survivor of two failed marriages and the emotionally detached father of three grown daughters, Liam is jolted into alarm after he's attacked in his apartment and loses all memory of the experience. His search to recover those lost hours leads him into an uneasy exploration of his disappointing life and into an unlikely new relationship with Eunice, a socially inept walking fashion disaster who is half his age. She is also spontaneous and enthusiastic, and Liam longs to cast off his inertia and embrace the joyous recklessness that he feels in her company.
A los sesenta y un años, Liam Pennywell acaba de perder su trabajo. Lejos de entristecerse por algo que nunca le interesó realmente, lo toma como una señal. Es justo lo que necesita para adentrarse en la última fase de su vida, en la que puede recapitular y prepararse para el final. Entusiasmado por primera vez en años, decide mudarse a un apartamento más sencillo y acorde con su nueva vida. Sin embargo, en su primera noche allí sucede algo inesperado, y días más tarde se despierta en un hospital sin un recuerdo claro de lo ocurrido. Resuelto a recuperar esos momentos "robados", y siempre bajo la escéptica mirada de sus hijas, Liam decide que lo que en realidad necesita es alguien que recuerde por él.
