Synopsis / Plot
The scratchy score of piano & song really sounds like a recording from the 'twenties or 'thirties. Moments of the song are in sync with the face of Sarah Constible, who has the look of a D. W. Griffith silent film star emoting woe.

Her song is like a Hebrew prayer that narrate's a man's march through curtains of memory to the place of a misery-laiden child, concluding with his farewell to his mother.
