This unique and compassionate new play asks how do we address life’s biggest questions when words fail us.

After news anchor and investigative reporter JACK HAWKINS reveals irregularities in the gardening department of a San Francisco park, the criticized gardener—a troubled man—commits suicide by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. Jack is then sent to California's Central Valley to cover a drought story, and is forced to confront not only his responsibility for the suicide, but also to reconsider his private and more public actions as he meets two women: one from his past, and one, possibly, for his future.
