Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Surrounded by the vast ocean, seventeen-year-old Kid's temporary home is an island populated by an idiosyncratic group of elderly separatists who left behind the youth-obsessed mainland to create their own alternative community. Kid is a reminder of all they've left behind and are determined to forget. Tough and tender, compassionate and ferocious, intelligent and provocative, this is a meditation on death and life, past and future, aging and youth, memory and forgetting, that explores what it means to find acceptance - of things past and those to come.
