Koi Story is a one-act musical about a widow, her daughter, and a Japanese windsock called koinobori.
Inspired by a true event from my childhood, wherein a very large hammer fell from a very tall place and hit me square on the head, I naturally decided this was an apt metaphor for taking responsibility when representing "the other." It actually tracks pretty well.
