Winnie would say she's no trouble. She's content to let the days go by, minding her own business, bothering no-one. She'd rather not recall the past and, at 72, doesn't see much point in thinking about the future.

Robbed of everything she owns, she embarks on a journey to track down the thief - but she soon finds that what began as a search for stolen belongings has become the rediscovery of a stolen life.
