The play opens at the wake for a small girl who has died after an accident in the home. Three generations of women are present with two of their partners and the twin sister of the dead child's mother. The child's mother lashes out at her partner and other family members in her grief and the guilt she feels about the child's death. This reawakens her grandmother's memories of losing her baby and the bitterness towards her husband at the time.
In a moving climax, the twin sisters, who have never been close, are reconciled and the audience is left with a sense of optimism for a new life.
(Four female and two male actors)
