"Adrift after newtown"
Jackie Barden stares into the back yard where her son Daniel used to play on a swingset in Newtown, CT on May 23, 2013. His toys, clothes, everything is exactly where he left them last year after the massacre. Jackie is a school teacher and has not returned to work. Neither has her husband. There are good days and band ones. Sometimes Jackie fantasizes that Daniel has just gone over to a friends house to play. Pretending helps her summon the energy to return an email or make a meal. All family members are in therapy.
