SYNOPSIS

A woman sits alone at a bar, world-weary and stretched thin. An old man enters and takes the stool next to her. Things get quite personal, quite fast, between these two strangers as they traverse their own trauma and need for healing. This piece asks whether forgiveness is possible, and if not, what is?
