Fiction. Olivia and her mother obsess over memories. For her mother, compulsion is a need to document everything in her life. To preserve. Olivia's urge is to revisit the scars of her body, as places of destruction. Yet, as Olivia grows up, she discovers that she cannot always rend memory from herself; it can burrow itself into places so deep that she can't make them bleed.
