A lost job.
A cardboard box.
A raging blizzard.
After being fired from his job, a veteran ad man is escorted from the office, carrying a cardboard box packed with mementos of his career. He steps out into a blinding blizzard, burdened by the weight of his collection.
Each object tells a story, and as he navigates the city and makes his way home, he indulges in memories from his past: former colleagues, an award-winning campaign, a lost love. But faced with the demands of the present-and the very real danger of the snow-bound city streets-he must decide whether to hold on to the objects of his past, or to let go in the hopes of surviving the night.
The bold, honest linocuts in Mark Huebner's Let Go form an evocative narrative that distills over twenty years of memories into a single night of intense struggle against nature both meteorological and human.
