Fred Davis had hoped that his home office might serve as a refuge from his seemingly unbearable grief. Now, even that sanctuary has been invaded. Behind Fred, seated on a wooden office chair, is a creature that insists on calling him, Daddy. It has now been there for more than three hours and appears to have no inclination to leave, despite Fred’s studied attempt to ignore it. The little being, in the form of a stuffed toy bunny, seems to want to follow Fred everywhere. Its soulful eyes seem to plead with Fred, to beg him for some form of acknowledgement – even perhaps, Fred fears, for his love.
Fred and Sarah Davis, a grieving couple at 333 Oak Lane, in the small town of Bent Spur, Texas, have chosen to shut themselves off from the rest of the world. One can only wonder how their strategy will fare in the face of four innocent souls who offer unconditional love.
