Martina Satriano is a successful 42-year old Italian university lecturer living in New York. She is an intellectual, attractive and a superlative cook, but she is ultimately lonely. Her only substantial relationship is with a machine of her own invention, through which she aims to demonstrate her alternative hypothesis on personal identity. Upon returning from Italy following the death of her mother, she begins to suspect that she was originally left-handed. This fuels both her research into her identity hypothesis, and her need to look into her past and her future. All these themes intertwine as Martina seeks her left-handed self.
