After leaving a mental institution, Imogen begins to investigate the disturbing disappearance of her brother, Johnny, who, more than thirty years earlier, went swimming and never returned. Johnny had been destined to be an Olympic swimmer in 1920s Ireland, so why would he throw away his career? Imogen doesn't think he's dead, so she looks into the past, hoping to find clues to Johnny's whereabouts. Emma Lowe tells this story in an Irish brogue, keeping pace with a soft cadence. Details unfold slowly as Imogen's search follows her stream-of-consciousness thought patterns, shifting from present to past and back again.
