When we first meet Mim, she is a recent college graduate who has disavowed her lower-middle-class roots to befriend Kyra, a dancer and daughter of privilege, until calamity causes their estrangement. Twenty years later, Kyra has gone missing from her NGO’s headquarters in Jalalabad, and Mim – now a recluse in rural New England – embarks on a mid-life journey to find her.
