in a not too distant future, after an economic collapse, luxury liners shelter the very rich from the squalor of the cities. summoned by his superior lucas brown, william bell must entertain edwards, a drunk passenger. in a dark bar on board the ship, the connections between all three men is illuminated forcing them all to confront what they desire and what they’ll never possess. inspired by melville’s billy budd.
