Carl reading the newspaper, Simone tackling some morning chores, and their son, Jack - "Your son has jumped off the roof!" Carl, in an emotional haze, heads off to work only to discover, on the sidewalk outside their home, a chalk outline where there had been a son. No parent should have to bury a child, especially through suicide. Linthout draws an almost tangible pain with his immediate, rudimentary art and strong script which comes from personal experience.
