THERE IS NO WORD is an adaptation of Tony Hoagland's poem of the same name that explores the subtle, impossible-to-describe experience of a good friendship changing to a mere acquaintanceship.
Here's what Tony said about it:
"your sense of image is beautiful and intuitive, and there's a sweet rawness
to the story telling which seems brave to me; especially when talking about
male friendship-so, good for you and thanks for the honor."
