Honor has navigated the ups and downs of marriage with her husband Gus for 32 years. Despite a promising career as a poet, she set aside her ambitions to support Gus and their daughter Sophie. When Gus betrays her and moves in with a woman half his age, Honor is left to reinvent herself.
In a series of intense confrontations, Honor, Gus, his lover and their daughter negotiate the forces of passion, lust, responsibility and honor. These interactions are told in a distinctly original way, using theatrical language that is darkly comic, highly poetic and uncomfortably familiar.
