The walls are thin. A woman’s dead husband whispers to her from beyond the grave. Or are the sounds her newly single neighbor Bug, wrestling with insecurity, abandonment, and a new sado-masochistic lover? Both neighbors struggle to stay afloat in an uncertain present as the loves and wounds of their pasts roil to the surface and flashes of bleak futures fill their silences. Both have been ghosted, in vastly different ways. Both yearn for escape. But how can their yearning find its action? Its words? Its song?
