The complex talks about a lot of things,” Siara teased. “There are big swings and little swings. He’s someone who looks back on his life and tries to remember the good times, mixed with a 5-year-old playing with toys in the garden. It never takes itself too seriously, but sometimes it gets pretty serious. I guess at its core it’s about people wanting to go back to a time in life when things seemed a little easier, before the hard times in life piled up. These are people who are trying to regain that sense of belonging. And within that there is a great mystery.”
