Synopsis

Anthony turns up in Caroline’s room one night bearing waffle fries, a beat-up book, and a story about a project they have been assigned to work on together by their lit teacher: to explore Walt Whitman’s use of the pronouns 'I' and 'you' in "Song of Myself." Caroline suffers from a rare disease and hasn’t been to school in quite a while, so she’s surprised and a little suspicious, given that she has no recollection of Anthony whatsoever. As the two get to know each other while plumbing the poem’s mysteries, they are unaware that a much deeper mystery has brought them together. "I and You" is a valentine to youth, love, and the strange beauty of human connectedness.
