Centered on a young professional couple who realize that to attain the American Dream they need to leave the US behind. But even on distant shores, the forces they are trying to escape filter in and prompt a reckoning: does the Dream lie inside and, if so, can it be separated from the fears and anxieties that also dwell within?

An Excerpt

The captain’s here-and-now disappeared. He was a boy again, sitting on his grand-dad’s pram, watching as a bucket of fish—the day’s catch—emptied onto the floorboards.

And the more they poured, the more he kept feeling happy, despite the small boat now being halfway filled with fish and getting fuller by the minute.
