After his abusive father's suicide, Scott struggles to untangle his feelings of grief from his trauma, and his trauma from his trans identity. This, paired with Scott's transphobic and oblivious mother and the return of his ex-girlfriend, forces Scott to face his past, present, and future, in order to heal.

This production contains strong language, as well as the death of a close family member, suicide, abuse, and transphobia.
