THE STORY: Alice and Gabe are desperate to adopt a child. Nance, a single mom just starting to date, struggles to connect with her teenage daughter, Evie. And Evie wishes her best friend, Colin, could fall for her rather than just trying to fix things. With both humor and aching insight, these lives are woven together in a tale of parental hopes and fears, and of hearts consumed by longing.
"A well-written script, and plenty of humor." — "Probing and amusing…Making that shift from laughs to tragedy, from mockery to compassion, requires pinpoint acting and enormous range." —Louisville Eccentric Observer. "Such compelling stories!" —
