On the cusp of thirty, Abe is bored, but content. He’s employed with minimal responsibilities. His peers are like-minded menials with hedonistic tendencies. He frequents house shows headlined by bands with names like “Assplay” and “Snuff Creature”, what more is he supposed to do? He’s not hurting anyone, right? He’s an ally, on paper, what more is he supposed to do? What is Abe’s purpose and does he need one? Should we even care? ‘Purgatory’ is an examination of identity, intentions, and purpose through the eyes of a dominating, yet culturally waning, perspective.
