Else (2019)

“Everyone and everything here is else, different in identity. We have a homeless person whose quiet companion ghost absorbs the sorrows of others, an android who dreams of cats, and a woman in a wheelchair who is lured by a mermaid to a place where only the perfect are allowed to live. Our poets show us the Great War through the eyes of ancients, a forbidding door whose threat is not what it seems, and a color blue that really isn’t.”
