The Weight of an Infinite Sky (2018)
Carrie La Seur
"Carrie La Seur...dazzles with a dramatic story of a land threatened, a prodigal son returned, and a community divided. A modern Western draped over the bones of a Shakespearean tragedy, La Seur weaves an intimate and achingly beautiful tale of broken promises, legacy, belonging, and the shape of home."
