Recced because: This is another tiny story that manages to be packed tight with ideas, images, and beautiful characterization. It's a gorgeous pairing, and the voices and mood are just right. Once a year, in the cold, the two women meet: their discussions about the past, the future, and all the possibilities in between illuminate each character in an understated but very moving way. It's a lovely piece of work.
