After the sudden loss of their best friend, Good-dog, Sad-bird must adjust to their new life in a world of angels, anarchists, aliens, and the ghost of a disgraced Russian scientist. As Sad-bird searches for their place on earth, Good-dog searches for his place among the stars. Smile Medicine explores the timely themes of depression, loss, regret, and hope through humor, lamentation, and music.
