A video portrait of an intimate friend of the artist - Susan Weisser - and her relationship with her 13-year-old son, Billy, and 17-year-old daughter, Amanda. The author asked them to reconstruct their daily rituals. The results were enactments, accounts, confidences and arguments that freely crisscross each other within the dynamic created by the presence of the video artist and his "unobtrusive" Hi8 camera. Surprising events ensue within evocative framings of sounds and images, and the enchanted constructions from the fanciful revelations of the everyday.
