Twenty years ago, Lissie and Roger fled from their family farm and made themselves disappear, but the family secrets haunt them still.  A funeral and a question from an old friend send the two siblings tumbling down a rabbit hole of memory and grief, as they try to let go of a tangled past that refuses to release them.
