Beings of glowing golden energy have fallen to Earth, held within capsules that have been travelling for centuries through interstellar space. They arrive with a mission and a purpose. After finally finding a place where she can escape from some of her past, a closeted, pre-transition trans woman is going home at the end of her first year of university. She struggles with the pain of leaving her friends and returning to the place of many painful memories and expectations. An oak tree, a squirrel and an overcrowded service station will change her life, and the world, forever.
