In a world where one’s Animal Affinity is a sign of maturity and worth, Elsa’s inability to demonstrate hers is becoming more than a disappointing nuisance; it’s becoming a danger. FINIS. is the magic realism of our time, a story of finding one's way to the end of things, of persevering through the dregs of life to discover something more.
