This storygame takes place in a flashback told over a phone interview to a
homelessness charity case worker, reflecting on an average day in the lives of
the onetime middle-class mortgage-paying homeowner family being interviewed.
Through a mundane framing device of searching through the house one stormy day
for missing parts of a costume for a school play, a thousand and one little
stories of the family’s rich (and once seemingly promising) history are
incidentally revealed — as well as one innocuous letter from the bank
announcing a modest increase in interest rates. And from that single point,
everything naturally follows — or, rather, falls apart.
