Seventeen year old, Beck visits her grandmother every Sunday. When Nana falls asleep, Beck takes her glasses off of her. Out of curiosity, and wonder of how far Nana's sight has gone, Beck tries them on. To Becks surprise, the view isn't blurry. In fact she can see clearly, but what she sees isn't the world she knows. Through Nana's glasses she sees the world as it was in 1953. Which happens to be the year Nana Lou believes it to be, after being diagnosed with Alzheimer's 2 years earlier.
