Anna Madrigal, the 92-year-old former landlady of 28 Barbary Lane, recalls her teen years as Andy Ramsay, the son of a brothel owner in Winnemucca, Nevada. Meanwhile in the present, Anna's longtime friend and former tenant Michael Tolliver finds that his much-younger husband Ben is a constant reminder of his own mortality. Another former tenant, Brian Hawkins, offers to take Anna for a final visit back to Winnemucca, where she claims she has unfinished business, as Brian's adopted daughter Shawna puts the wheels in motion to have a baby. It all converges at Burning Man, an unlikely destination for Anna.
