This piece is a very conceptual approach to a book. The travel trunk holds a suitcase filled with letters between two lovers in the 1900's. The passports inside display the two young people and the story behind shows that they desire to spend a life together, yet have no money so the young man goes away to work in a factory for 6 years in order to save money, to ensure they may share a comfortable and affordable future together.
