Seeking neutral ground, Helen and James drive out of the city to an open field on a moonlit evening. From sunset to sunrise, they confront their past together and attempt to forge a possible future. Years later, Helen and Marcus meet for dinner in Los Angeles to discover if shared history constitutes common ground. In two spare acts, playwright Matthew Freeman aims his laser sharp observations on the limits of human forgiveness and the way we remember those we’ve left behind.
