In the Moment presents a gritty series of short stories focusing on characters who are raw, honest, unredeemable, marginal, spiritual, and beautiful. Chronicling scenes from life made vividly authentic, all the players are genuine-people we might be or know, snapshots of everyday life.
Chance a moment with a stranger, and experience unexpected events. Struggle along with a family whose child will never be any better than at that moment; stay with a rape victim through the horrific aftermath of her trauma. Run for safety in a war zone, and smell the Devil's missile. Get tipsy and dance with grannies, or pine for an ex. Grieve for a life wasted behind prison bars.
Does an event define a life, or does the individual define the event? Is it a combination of both, or is it something else entirely? For the short stories of In the Moment, the moment is now-good or bad. That defining moment in a person's life can say volumes about his or her character. We may never know more than we do now; the next step in life's dance is conjecture, a mystery, an uncertainty-but its part in the story is vital nonetheless.
