Leightons children, sitting on the back steps of a mid-west house. The initial view is nearly indecipherable, a blur of rich color, shimmering. These figures sit, then move, and in a complex and seemingly structuralist manner, they rise, begin to go down a step, are pulled back again, dissolving, fading in and out many times, but with a hidden and complex order.
