Explores the lives of people dealing with the impact of having to leave something or someone. Amongst 23 short scenes and monologues, that may somehow feel connected, we meet an astronaut about to embark on their first mission, an abused spouse who finally decides to leave their relationship, an immigrant forced to part ways with their partner as they enter a deportation facility, a group of factory workers planning a walk out and a suicidal celebrity contemplating the hereafter. Love and violence, hopes and dreams and parents and children trickle through the narrative as the play reflects on how we so often must disentangle ourselves from what we know, in the hope of something better.
