Our narrator is a gifted photographer, a biracial woman in an unraveling America. Yet another act of police brutality makes headlines, and this time the victim is Noah, a boy in her photography class. Unmoored by the grief of a recent devastating miscarriage and Noah's fight for his life, she worries she can no longer chase the hope of having a child, no longer wants to bring a Black body into the world. Yet her husband Asher - contributing white, Jewish genes alongside her Black-Japanese ones for any potential child - is just as desperate to keep trying. As the future shifts once again, she must decide what she dares hope for the shape of her future to be.
