How is it possible for a familiar route in one’s own city to turn into an odyssey? To understand it, one must put oneself in Joel’s shoes. On the day of his wife’s burial, he leaves home to take the dog to the vet, but locking himself out with the keys inside, he becomes trapped on the street. As he wanders through the city, desperately trying to find a way back inside, attempting to get rid of the dog and the friends and family who witness his suffering, we gradually discover what is going on inside him. And what does he expect to find at home? Perhaps a refuge, perhaps the space necessary to endure the pain.
