With stark simplicity, this eerie fable draws us into the potent imagination of Miles as he struggles to make sense of a wicked and arbitrary tragedy. Writer/director/editor Fessenden (HABIT NO TELLING) crafts a kaleidoscope of sounds and images, puppetry and cinema tricks to make a visceral analogue film-poem about existential angst, the power of myth, the relativity of revenge, and the perpetuation of aggression through time.
