In 2024 Phoebe, a "private personal services consultant," finds herself with an elderly client in a posh hotel room - she opens the wrong door and finds herself running for her life. Soon she is confronting her own past by way of a woman named Ruella, and the two join forces to prevent a murder, while Phoebe's gradual friendship with that remarkable woman changes the future for both of them.
