With the tragic death of his wife looming heavily upon him, alcoholic artist Paul Taylor sets out to sell everything that could possibly remind him of her. Between sorting through old boxes and taking swigs of vodka, it becomes apparent that Paul is not entirely alone. After finding cassettes that holds conversations between him and his wife, he begins hallucinating. As the delusions become grander with the flow of alcohol, she re-emerges along with the murky details surrounding her death. In the haze of booze and recall, Paul must choose whether he wants to remember the details of his wife’s end, or end it all himself.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
