The phone call Solace receives from a father she hasn't seen or heard from in almost twenty years opens a box of questions she never knew she had. His murder, moments before they actually meet, prompts a dialogue with Solace and the murderer that puts ten square blocks of her East St. Louis neighborhood in stark relief against the endless Pacific ocean her father promised to lay at her feet, which by the way, is not blue.
