DG is five the first time her mother goes away. She’ll go away again and again before DG understands why: mental illness and a manipulating husband. Traveling through the fifties and sixties, from apartheid South Africa to the capitals of Europe, the family live like dancing bears in a traveling circus with her father as the ringmaster. DG is on a journey from innocence to experience; to the realization that her mother’s illness isn’t the family's only problem; it's not even the main one.
