In a world where human hearts are made of inanimate objects, everyone seems detached from their feelings and addicted to their technological devices–but not Anabel. When she meets George, a kind but mild-mannered man, she feels a rare bond with another human being. After a series of painful rejections, Anabel vows to forgo the perils of living a life too full of feeling. She rips out her heart and sends it to George. Unable to offer anything in return, George disappears on a joy ride while Anabel’s world starts to fade. Will she summon the courage to get her own heart back?
