Mother of two Elvira Kennedy is 35, and recently widowed. When she's fatally injured in a car accident her mother, Carole, is distraught and in mood to listen to a stranger - claiming to be her new boyfriend - who appears at Elvira's bedside, insisting she wanted to donate her organs. But there's a darker reason behind her resistance to consenting: a secret she's kept hidden for three decades. Something which, if it emerged, could shatter all their lives. Pressure mounts. Time is running out. Carole finally bows to Elvira's wishes. Grateful letters from recipients whose lives Elvira has saved bring their own brand of comfort, but then a poem written by a young man threatens the safeguards preserving everyone's anymity, with potentially devastating consequences.
