After years in prison and subsequent hardships, Ray, fifty-six, has a new identity and has made a new life for himself. Una, twenty-seven, has thought of nothing else; she has arrived unannounced at his office. Guilt, rage, and raw emotions run high as they recollect the passionate relationship they had fifteen years ago, when she was twelve and he was forty. Without any moral judgments, the play never shies away from the brutal truth of this abandoned and unconventional love. Una is looking for answers, not vengeance. Nevertheless, the consequences are shattering.
