It is 1970 and Virginia Moore is in love with Glenn, and she is ready to change the future by marching against the war in Vietnam, and for equal rights for women. After being knocked unconscious by a beer bottle at a rally, she lapses into a coma. As her husband and sister visit, forty tumultuous years pass. While they share all she is missing, Virginia experiences an entire life for herself in Paris, and travels the world. When she miraculously awakes, Virginia, and the world, has transformed. Or has it?
