'Crystal follows six young kids as an other-worldly storm descends on their neighbourhood, threatening to break their homes and tear apart their families. Crystal adopts elements of magic realism and suburban ennui to explore divorce and its effects upon families and children in an altogether unique and utterly theatrical form.'
