While Boris immerses himself deeper and deeper into rehearsals for a new film with an ambitious director, Jonathan tries to redefine his voice as a writer. Ghosting through these days of wrestling with distance, closeness, trust, desire and fear of loss is Jonathans’ young niece Josie, who is trying out idiosyncratic ways to deal with the approaching end of her childhood.
