Nineteen year old Vida has spent the whole of her short life preparing for her death. Richard has just lost his beloved wife, Lorrie, in a car accident. These two characters are bound by a heart, Lorrie's heart, which is transplanted into Vida's chest. When Vida meets and declares she loves Richard, calling it love at first sight, Richard dismisses her as a foolish child. But is it more than this? Is it possible love can live on in a donated heart?
