Siblings Will and Kelsey have been living off the grid, battling their demons in a state of arrested development and isolation from the outside world, since their parents' mysteriously disappeared. When a stranger, Ben, arrives uninvited to tutor Kelsey, the younger of the pair, the siblings' fragile eco-system is challenged, and the two must decide whether to continue as they have or face the outside world.

This production contains discussion and depiction of self-harm, addiction, disordered eating, and cruelty to animals.
