After losing a love,Claire wrestles with such a dilema. Angry,she tussles the shore,the cliffs, demanding restoration. Enter:Celia an aged and very wise story teller.Celia senses the void in Claire's life,and begins to tell a story, which although brimming with legend and lore apothegm, seems realistic as the tides ebbing the shore [star fish marooned, yet only after surviving countless squalls, sea salt in the lungs,the mind, the heart.....as is death! ] Silly (Kirsten Dunst) the character in Celia's story,crested naturally of these truths, though the villagers viewed her as an obstacle to happiness.
