“And what remains is an emotionless kiss that tastes like mouth, like skin and spittle, flesh and death.” A boy receives strange messages from the outside world, communicated to him by phone. He longs to be outside. But there is his mother, guardian of a home of prison bars made of feelings of guilt and tears. Only a flood can help which will transform the flat into a shore from which one could swim away.
