Sparks start to fly pretty quickly as the Lafayette family come together for the first time in years. Family members start to verbalize long held grudges in an attempt to clear the air and make peace but bonds are tested when a terrible discovery is made. The painful and sometimes tense confrontations on stage provide an interesting mirror to tensions we see in our society.
