Set in 1992, this two-act dramatic comedy hubs around the troubles of a young girl named Mara, her family, and a desire for something more than an idle life. This is a story of a broken family told through dancing, the internal conflict of struggling with the future and sorting through a painful past.
Mara is challenged when her older brother, who ran away when he was a kid after their father died, shows up at the family reunion dinner, which their sister, Lauren, arranged. While facing their mother, who is cold and distant, at this dinner the two sisters struggle to find a resolution to broken pasts and undetermined futures. In the midst of all of this, Mara finds herself as a subject for a sociology graduate student’s family psychology thesis, and at the whim of her intolerable cousin, who is convinced that he is a cowboy.
