An American woman on an escape from reality in Bangkok befriends a novice Buddhist monk. As they work through their wounds together, their lost loved ones journey on in the spirit world, all trying to achieve some level of peace and maybe even enlightenment. Told through movement in a magical realism frame, this play explores the journey from grief to the start of healing. CJay Philip directs this important world premiere.
