By David Harrower
Directed by Paul Takacs

With Devin E. Haqq, Robyn Kerr, and Shane Taylor

In a rural world, poised on the cusp of transformation, the fates of a young woman, her plowman husband, and the local miller collide in a quest for knowledge, agency, and freedom. The Shop (I am the WindTender Napalm) return to 59E59 Theaters bringing David Harrower's "astonishing" (The Telegraph), seminal work to New York for the first time. Exploring one woman's journey to find herself, it unpacks the subtle power of words and ideas to liberate, empower, and lift the mind and soul.
