Poetic Crossing

J is in an episode of Six Feet Under swimming across the river to Corbiere - it has been filmed in a deliberately artificial style with cardboard waves and dry ice. The poetic scene is explained to me in broken french by her mother. Her father has neatly written out her movements in mathematical notation, giving precise map coordinates.
When J reaches the opposite shore she has become a bearded Union soldier from the American Civil War.
