“Get in the Elevator”
Ronen has a flight booked that leaves in three hours - but he doesn't know if he'll be on it. He's living at a spiritual retreat center where even talking about leaving is taboo. He has given a reason for why he wants to leave, but can't bring himself to give the real one. Will he leave? What will he say? Is this the end of his spiritual quest, or the beginning of a new one?
Tension is escalating in the group, no one is using "I" statements. Amber, the A.I. avatar therapist intervenes: "I think it's time to return to our breath. Is everyone ready?" Jeremy thinks some breathing would be pretty great right about now. Marsha will do whatever Amber says because Amber never asks her to talk about her mother. Tony doesn't want to breathe...EVER. Amber won't be returning to her breath. She's an avatar, on a t.v. screen. And avatars, well, they can't breathe.
“Freddy Goes Solo”
Freddy’s fine, until he’s not. He’s where he should be at this point in his life, older, wiser, winding down from a life of, as he say’s. “pressin’ flesh for a livin’.” Freddy’s an ol’ tme masseur at Club C’mac in South Philly. His hands are legend…so’s his heart. He’s getting ready to retire, no time to get a piece of shocking news. He has a little girl to take care of. It’s hard enough to forgive someone when they’re alive, but what do you do when they die on you…you go solo…pick up the pieces… find a way back.
