INHUME

A GENESIS STORY

Man is on his deathbed. His wife, Life, watches over him. His son, Own -- a modern man -- is determined to keep him alive by whatever means necessary. But Life understands the cost of playing God.

Death. Her name is Death.

She remembers the Garden, where Death cradled them all in Her arms. That was before Life swallowed the fruit. Now Death lives inside her: the memory of her son, Breath, murdered by his Own brother. She spits and spits and spits, trying to spit Death back out.
