Equal parts irreverent and heartbreaking, Dead Dog’s Bone is a family drama about loving people you have nothing in common with, the melancholia of birthdays, and the goodness of dogs.
The birthday is the most melancholy of celebrations.
There is cake.
The cake is wearing candles.
There are friends.
The friends are wearing hats.
Every birthday is a victory. Every birthday is a defeat.
One year completed! Success!
Is one year gone. Closer. Closer.
Today is Dog’s last birthday.
