A harrowing listen rendered in taught prose and skillfully performed by Casey Holloway,Fix Me will stay with you long after the sudden, evocative ending.

The zoo is a sanctuary: a protective space for families, and a safe place for the traumatized to forget. But can she ever feel safe? Can she ever forget?
