Additional Information

After a heated argument with her parents, James’ older sister Jorie disappears without a trace. The most absurd theories about her whereabouts circulate at school. Jorie was always there for her sensitive brother, giving him support and comforting him when he had nightmares. Her absence leaves a deep hole in James. In addition, social anxiety and panic attacks make every school day a challenge for the 16-year-old. It is also completely unthinkable for him to approach his secretly adored classmate Sophie. He cannot confide in his parents, who are always arguing. His constantly sad mother laments the missed opportunities of her life. His father, a war veteran, is withdrawn and choleric at times. James finds comfort in the works of the author Walt Whitman, and spiritual support in Dr. Bird, a dove and his imaginary therapist. Then the unexpected happens. Sophie approaches James and asks about a graphic poem his sister wanted to create for the school newspaper. When James rummages through Jorie’s room, he finds clues to her possible whereabouts. Together with Sophie, he sets out to find her.
