Set in Dallas over two weeks in March 2008, the defendant, a mother of three brothers, finds herself confined to her home as a suspect in a manslaughter case. The brothers reunite under these circumstances, each bringing their unique perspectives and reacting distinctively to the situation. Meanwhile, their mother remains tight-lipped about the case, causing frustration for her children, her best friend, and the attorney handling her defense, who seeks positive publicity. Interspersed with flashbacks of memories with her loved ones, the play explores the conflicts and dilemmas that surface in the tension between family bonds and the pursuit of freedom. 

Please be advised that this play contains the topics of Addiction, extreme violence, outdated terms and a gun shot.
