WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

David Cale gives words to escaping the volatility of his parents' marriage by singing Petula Clark songs, by tending to the tropical birds in the animal hospital he built in a garden shed, by embodying vivid memories, and by learning to live when death is suddenly everywhere. Weaving together family portraits, narrative storytelling, and original songs lushly arranged by Matthew Dean Marsh, Cale tells his harrowing autobiographical story of growing up in an industrial English town with an intimate authenticity and lays bare the violent act that changed everything and the surreality of being propelled out.
