The As If Body Loop
Hebrew legend has it there are thirty-six people who must carry all the pain of the world. When Aaron discovers that his sister, who has suddenly fallen ill, might be one of them, he sets off on a comic misadventure to help heal her. A misadventure that includes everything from quantum physics to professional football as he wrestles with the question: is it ever possible to really heal another person?
