Rachel and James are a white couple who move to Ohio from Uganda hoping to provide a better life for their adopted, African son, Daniel. However, they struggle to find a place for Daniel in the public school system as he suffers from a severe case of PTSD. The play follows his progress through the eyes of the adults who are responsible for him while his behavior becomes increasingly alienating and dangerous. A co-production with the Black Dahlia Theatre.

"McKee has created five fascinating and richly detailed characters, and director Larissa Kokernot's production brings them to vibrant life." CRITIC'S PICK --Neal Weaver, Backstage West "The theatre is intimate and the show's design efficient, with strong actors who are fully able to relax while owning the complex roles." --Kenneth Hughes, Flavorpill
