Not much happens in this 30-minute valentine. Scorah reminisces about her favorite toy, a little stool that is replaced by a much bigger version when she transforms into her younger self; a destitute neighbor comes asking for money; Scorah's grandmother passes moral judgment, and that's about it. Scorah delivers her lines tentatively but is totally enthusiastic when she becomes a toddler, clearly enjoying reconnecting with her inner child. Hunter and Kimberling are like a pair of graceful ghosts, creating whispery impressions of another era.
The piece ends with a video of Scorah's now elderly parents dancing a quick step in their crowded living room. They laugh with abandon as they forget the steps and bump into the furniture. It's a sweet ending to a tender tribute.
