A sort of modern epistolary, this multi-generational tale is told in layers: Rott Mellevold goes on a conspiracy theory podcast to refute rumors that his wealthy family are secretly psychic healers; Rott's not-biological-nor-legal father, Asher Rhys, leaves voicemails for his friend over a period of 20 years; Margot and Ranger Mellevold have intimate conversations with their son Lukas (both before and after his death). But primarily it is the story of Asher, who marries Lukas Mellevold at 18, is a widower by 28, and spends his thirties trying to hold on to his son Rott. A fable of parenthood, sacrifice, forgiveness.
