As Federico tries to reconcile his conflicted feelings, Fred attempts to bridge his masculine and feminine side—a parallelism that's as sketchy as it sounds. But while the characters' individual contexts may be only brusquely handled, the actors, under Michael John Garcés's gentle direction, wholly inhabit their predicaments. Richard Marquez's lovely percussion underscoring deepens the poetic nature of the journey, which suggests that though we can never really go home again, we can always travel deeper into the alienated past.
