When Frank catches a deadly new form of the flu, his girlfriend Polly agrees to a radical plan. Time travel has been invented in the future to thwart the virus, and if she signs up for a one-way-trip into the future to work as a bonded laborer, the company will pay for the life-saving treatment that Frank needs. Polly promises to meet Frank again in Galveston, Texas, where she will arrive in 12 years. But when Polly is re-routed an extra five years into the future, Frank is nowhere to be found. Alone in a changed and divided America, Polly must navigate a new life and find a way to locate him, to discover if he is alive, and find out if their love has endured.
