In a world of magical realism and rising water, two sisters are reunited at their family home.

Sister Deedee has returned to bring her fiancee, Pike, to safety, even as her memory is vanishing faster and faster. In this slowly drowning world, everyone is searching for higher ground. The sisters battle to the end, one unable to forget, the other unable to remember. Mox Nox is a play of lyrical magic and visual surprise, with characters who desperately need love and dry land.
