Millie Bird is seven-years-old. On a shopping trip with her mum, Millie is left alone beneath the Ginormous Women's underwear rack in a department store. Her mum never returns.
Agatha Pantha is eighty-two and hasn't left home since her husband died. Instead, she fills the silence by yelling at passers-by, watching loud static on TV, and maintaining a strict daily schedule. Until the day Agatha spies a little girl across the street.
Karl the Touch Typist is eighty-seven and in a nursing home. He remembers how he once typed love letters with his fingers on to his wife's skin. Now widowed, he knows that somehow he must find a way for life to begin again. In a moment of clarity, he escapes.
Together, Millie, Agatha and Karl set out to find Millie's mum. And along the way, they will discover that the young can be wise , that old age is not the same as death , and that breaking the rules once in a while might just be the key to a happy life .
