Two young women survive in an attic crawl space in this tensely poetic narrative music video for Michigan folk band Frontier Ruckus. The women go about their lives, using clever tricks to provide the basic necessities, surviving by will and ingenuity, sharing tender moments, caring for each other, and enjoying each second like it's their last. Piece by piece, their tenuous life falls apart, and they are forced to reconcile with the outside world that they have attempted to shut out.
