An exceptional girl named Paloma is coming to grips with death after the loss of her mother to cancer, and attempts to locate her in dreams. Plagued with strange dreams and nightmares, she is guided through her unconscious by an imaginary friend in search of her mother’s memory. As the dream world and reality merge and become indistinguishable, Paloma sifts through deep archetypes and monsters of the unconscious, looking for remnants of the past to hold on to so that her mother will not be lost in time. Her father and older sister are her only link to the real world, and they must do all they can to help Paloma work through her grief. This play is an exploration of a loss, a child’s first encounter with death and the incredible power of her imagination.
