When Elisabeth Tova Bailey contracts a mysterious illness that keeps her bedridden, she finds herself entranced by a common snail living on her nightstand. The result is a lovely meditation on this small, unassuming creature. It's a look at how one woman survives the weariness of a severe illness and the beauty of life even in its most odd and miniature forms.
