    • Yes, I think so. I think the whole idea - we like to say communication, but denial plays a part of it as well. You have this couple that don’t see eye to eye on their beliefs. And they’ve never come to terms with how they’ll talk to their child about these issues. So as a result, they push those issues away, which is where the deal could sort of come in - since they never learned how to talk about these issues they pretend they don’t exist. And as a result, it sets forward this chain of events from that denial. It’s the unwillingness to communicate with their daughter about death that leads them instead to bury the cat in the burial ground, and the cat leads to ultimately the destruction of their entire family.
