While on his way to North Africa, octogenarian David Green is quarantined for twelve days in London, England. His time is spent cooped up in a small hotel room peering out of his window watching humanity scurry about while he waits to be released from government-imposed COVID-19 safety measures.
Now nearly eighty-three, David cringes looking at the old man he sees in the mirror, wondering where both his muscle and time have gone. When he is finally released from confinement, David travels to Oxford, Bournemouth, England, Lisbon, Portugal and wanders the streets of Manhattan. Unfortunately, he is forced to feel the fear of the dreaded virus that follows him everywhere he goes, not knowing who the reaper will take next.
Over the course of his travels, David spends time reflecting upon a life—past, present, and future—seen through his aging eyes. Humor, remorse, and both emotional and rational moments are mixed with the constant realization that David’s body is giving out. He might not be the specimen he once was and yet, his adventurous life is far from over.
