Our twenties are a decade of finding forks in the road and flirting with possibilities; of grasping for identities that slip through our fingers like silk. They are the lonely years filled with the absurdities of becoming and self-discovery.

This collection of international shorts all explore the labyrinth of growing up. In Japan, a crab woman reminisces on the days of crab childhood. In the UK, a new mother sinks into the multitudes that arise within us during the worthy work of loving. And in Beirut, a woman teeters on the junction between one life and another.
