In the oldest part of Stockholm, Bell Everhurst is working as a nanny for Hanna and Max Von Greyerz. One morning, a woman from a clinic she's never heard of calls and asks Bell to pass on the message that Hanna's husband is awake. When she finally reaches Hanna, the truth is revealed: Hanna's first husband fell into a coma seven years earlier and has been in a Persistent Minimally Conscious State since. But now he's awake. And life is going to change for them all.
