A Feast of Brief Hopes
There are unseen forces in our lives that shape who we are and what we become. How we respond to those forces determines our futures. These stories examine how characters respond to the unexpected. Do we carry our memories of the beautiful moments of life with us into death? And, ultimately, what do we value in life that defines us–from a hat to the shadow of a figure in a window reminding us of what we have lost or need to hold onto.
