An invocation, an elegy, a way to begin after the end.

Two women set out through the haze of social and environmental collapse in search of fertile soil. As they travel through deserts, burned-over forests, and lightless mountain caverns, they learn to navigate the terrain of their evolving connection. An invocation, an elegy, a postcard home, Sift is a story about family wounds, humanity's failures, how to care for one another at the end, and how to make a new beginning.
