Anjela in the alley, fending off rats. Tim in his driveway, his family pulling away. Claire, away from her family, in a new home, entertaining an old lover. Lying in the pigsty, they are alone. The distant country has exacted its price, and they are left with nothing. It’s in this rock-bottom moment that they can see for the first time just how good things were - in their Father’s house. In a sudden awakening, they realize the lie of the distant country, and long for what they’ve left behind.
