In the mid 1970's the country had been knocked on its back and somehow couldn't regain its footing. A movement began to spread across the country, scooping up the young and willing in its wake; a narcissistic pilgrimage to self-enlightenment. The "Me Generation" was born.
Two young women from different parts of the Mid-west and from different circumstances leave their own past to create an unknown future in Seattle.
Hope is shy and unwise in the ways of the world. On her first day in Seattle she finds herself on the waterfront of Puget Sound, lost, exhausted and bewildered. She is befriended by outspoken, outgoing, streetwise and quirky Posy. While they had little to feed themselves they are given discarded day old produce from the Public Market and share it with the homeless. Posy knows them well, having spent a season in their world.
The matriarch of the homeless is a proud elderly woman they called Auntie Bea. She keeps her personal business private. In an unguarded moment she tells of her childhood in rural Georgia. Through the years her secrets have been hidden in an old ragged box and are revealed only after it is too late.
They meet self-absorbed Burke who is driven by family business, money and image. His painful transformation changes the lives of everyone around him.
