    Tien movingly captures the manner in which different folks struggle to manage the earth-moving devastation of a recent loss; the father by clearing the decks, the son by visiting an revisiting recorded memories of the past, and the daughter through a psychic connection with the very creatures who brought death to her mother. A lyric tale told through distinct voices, elegantly detailing one family's emotional survival. Highly recommended for production!
