AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Over a fiercely hot weekend, four people grapple with life changing news, wondering whether their fate is deserved or earned, and how happiness might be possible. Meryl is a lonely artist who literally envisions disaster around every corner. Nick is a photojournalist whose work keeps him emotionally distanced from the tragedies he documents. When the two meet in the aftermath of a real train accident, their lives, and the lives of a handful of other witnesses and victims, are revealed and transformed.
