COMPARTMENTALIZATION STORAGE FACILITY

A skeptical woman checks out an extraordinary storage facility where customers can, quite literally, compartmentalize their issues. A cowboy-salesman haphazardly tries to get her to commit to a unit, but she is hesitant. Her walk down suppressed-memory lane leaves her unaffected until the last locker reveals a crossroads where there’s no turning back.

PUSH THE POINT

Akif’s answer is a poem he’s written at a poetry workshop about his brother who’s no longer with us.
