Product description

In the paediatrics ward of a public hospital, a group of sick children is gathering. The surrogate parents of this band - a surgical resident and a therapist - are charged with keeping them alive on storytelling and make-believe alone. Operation Wandering Soul is a story about imagination and memory. At once a social indictment and an intensely emotional account of intimate need, it asks how we might keep alive a little longer the vanishing narratives of childhood.
