Callie's father has disappeared.  He simply didn't come home from work one day.  No warning.  No reason.  He is just gone.  As Callie tries to come to terms with her father's disappearance, her friends try to help her cope.  When they take her to an art exhibit, Callie cannot believe her eyes.  There in a photograph from the 1906 earthquake is a man who looks exactly like Callie's father.  Of course that can be him.  The story then shifts to the earthquake's aftermath and we meet a man who cannot remember who he is and how he got there.  How can these two stories be related?
