Meet Antigone, a teen with a melancholic reverence for the beauty and tragedy of the world. She’s locked in the bathroom of her Uncle’s logging trailer, dirty, exhausted, and in complete darkness. With her flashlight, the innards of her childhood music box, evidence recorded on her phone, and a fresh piece of cedar, she must convince the logger guarding the door to let her get back to the oldest known Western Red Cedar in BC, and stop the destruction of all that she knows to be right.
