While making her famous soda bread, a woman drops the dough on her son's face. Seeing what her son might look like with no face creeps her out. The next time she sees her darling boy, she can't help but see him as strange, faceless child. And whenever she makes dough, all she can see is a small body attached to it by a scrawny neck. One day it gets so bad that she bakes her son for 45 minutes at 425˚ Fahrenheit and drops some dough off at school.
