children become teens through strange rituals, a young doghead excon in love aspires to the straighter road, the citizens of a falling plane stumble upon meaning and connection in the moments before explosion, an aged revolutionary artist, dying, tries to wrap things up.through four chapters, each crafted by different materials, scratched out through shaky hands in a rough but transformative year, strained through sieves of separate but inarguably of-a-piece tones and considerations, we are guided, fingers brushing milk and fire, smoke and snot, through a brief simulation of what may, in the end, just be something we could call “Life.”
