A woman lives alone, restless for expression. Staving off loneliness in a world clinging to the idea of Noah's ark where we must all travel to our deaths two-by-two, she begins to anthropomorphise objects in her house, until she finds the one. Is it a dissociative breakdown, or is it love?

Recorded at The Flying Nun on 8 May 2021 in front of a live audience.
