Complex and fast-paced editing animates the sculpture
and text of this story about conditions within
"The Sunnybrook Institution for the Mentally Handicapped".
The result is a cross between medieval European sculpture
and North American comic books, with dialogue laced with humour,
anger and irony. The heroine is hired at Sunnybrook
because she says she was on staff at a clinic
where she was actually a patient.
In this "creative autobiography" the lines between truth and fiction
are purposefully blurred : This isn't truth, it's memory.
