delicacy of a puffin heart
by Stefani Kuo
Each scene named after a question in the New York Times’ 36 Questions to Fall in Love, delicacy of a puffin heart jumps between the intertwined stories of Meryl and Ana Sofia and their daughter Robyn and her roommate Hadley.
In a small San Francisco apartment in the 1990s, Meryl and Ana Sofia, a lesbian couple, attempt to conceive a child through in-vitro fertilization while navigating Meryl’s bipolar disorder II. In the same apartment two decades later, their daughter, Robyn, and her roommate Hadley are forced to navigate their friendship through Robyn’s cancer.
In the struggle to take control of their lives, relationships, and illnesses, four women unravel the complexity of their Asian, Bulgarian, and outsider-to-American identities and experience the potential loss of female friendship and sense of self: What does it mean to love someone honestly even when they are incapable of being honest with themselves?
