A touching and tender graphic novel following Ed, a reserved man dealing with dementia in a small, northern-Canadian town. As Ed’s memory declines he loses touch with the present and revisits a past he chose to forget. As he loses more of his present, he finds himself lost more in the 1970s when he toured rural Canada in a glam rock band. A queer, romantic-tragedy.
