Full of wisdom and compassion, Census is deeply thoughtful and affecting. The story follows a widowed father with a terminal illness, worried over the fate of his son once he is gone. Father and son depart on a journey together visiting households and serving dubiously as census-takers, witnessing, listening, and reflecting on poignant accounts of the human experience. It holds within it an intangible magic.
