Preservation is the story of a 5 year old girl and her mother who have moved in with the grandmother while the father/husband/son is away at war in Iraq. The daughter sees her grandmother storing food in the freezer and misunderstands the concept of “preservation”. Using her child-like logic, she decides to freeze her pet hamster, Binky, to ensure that he will still be around when her father returns.
