Edith Moore is a bitter woman in her eighties. In the months following her husband George’s death, Edie’s strained relationship with her daughter Nancy begins to worsen. The question over Edie’s future looms large; while Edie tries hard to convince Nancy she can manage fine by herself, Nancy is making plans for her mother to move to a retirement home. One regret haunts her most of all: when Edie was married, her father planned a climbing trip for them in the Scottish Highlands. Edie yearned to go, but George made her stay at home. Now, Edie decides to make the trip herself alone.
