Bisher hatte sie nicht die besten Karten im Lebenspoker: das erste Kind mit 17, das zweite mit 19, der Mann arbeitslos, der Vater im Gefängnis, die nervige Mutter als Nachbarin. Ann ist 23 und trägt trotz allem die kleine Sehnsucht in sich, dass alles einmal besser werden könnte. Als Ehefrau und Mutter lebt sie mit ihrer Familie in einem Trailer, putzt nachts an der Uni und muss sich mit ihrer ewig unzufriedenen Mutter herumschlagen. Doch eines Tages ändert sich Anns eintöniger Alltag schlagartig. Nach einem Schwächeanfall wird sie ins Krankenhaus eingeliefert. Die Diagnose des Arztes ist niederschmetternd: Krebs im Endstadium - sie hat noch zwei Monate zu leben. Aber Ann behält die schockierende Nachricht für sich, erzählt niemandem etwas davon, sondern fasst einen einsamen Entschluss: Sie wird das bisschen verbleibende Leben noch auskosten, sich Wünsche erfüllen, kleine Utopien verwirklichen und für ihre Lieben die Zeit nach ihrem Tod, das Leben ohne sie, vorbereiten
