The Gorden family is moving out of the house that has been theirs for 37 years. Amid the usual detritus of cherished objects and abandoned junk, there is the skull. Family legend says it was the skull of a Japanese soldier killed in WWII, but no one is certain. Forgotten for years, stored in the back of a closet, the skull presents a unique challenge: how do you get rid of it? Each family member has his or her own opinion… smash it, bury it, throw it out, or take it to the police?
But while the family argues and packs up the house around it, the skull speaks to us, letting us in on its secret desires.
