Joe O'Brien is a Boston cop; his physical stamina and methodical mind have seen him through decades of policing the city streets, while raising a family with his wife Rosie. When he starts making uncharacteristic errors - mislaying his weapon, having trouble writing up reports, slurring speech - he attributes them to stress, though he finally agrees to see a doctor. The unexpected, terrifying diagnosis is Huntington's disease. Not only is Joe's life set to change forever, but each of his four grown-up children has a fifty per cent chance of inheriting the disease. Observing her potential future play out in her father's escalating symptoms, his yoga-teacher daughter Katie wrestles with how to make the most of the here and now, and how to care for her dad who is, inside, always an O'Brien.
