How much is "nothing" worth?
Is it worth a Lincoln penny? How about four 50-pesewa coins from Ghana?
Jude received the coins as a child. Now an adult, he has made it to Singapore as a candidate for a prestigious PhD. He fervently believes academia can save him from his past growing up in Africa, a past of poverty and pain. But far from saving him, his new life seems to be leading him deeper and deeper into conflict. Across the world in Chile, Noemi struggles with depression and loss, and finds redemption through healing other people. Despite her newfound power and purpose, she lives on the edge of an invisible precipice.
Against all odds, an uncanny connection forms between these two unlikely friends and changes the course of both their lives.
What have the coins got to do with it? "Nothing," it turns out, may not be what it seems.
