Dr. Vivian Bearing has spent years teaching the brilliant sonnets of English poet John Donne. When she is diagnosed with terminal cancer, Vivian applies her aggressive and rational probing of literature toward examining her own life and mortality. As her illness evolves, so does her relationship with herself and those around her, leading to a transformation that is both humorous and profound.
