Eleanor Mitchell is moving house. But in her property-based odyssey across London, she becomes increasingly more interested in the occupants than the buildings themselves. Each visit becomes a glimpse at a kind of life she might have had as she imagines herself in their shoes. Then, she begins to see the connections between them all.
