Things get screwed up. People disappoint. But then what? Our season kickoff show brings you storytellers determined to find themselves - amidst family secrets, in a combustible college encounter, despite a parent’s painful edict, and caught in a seemingly endless search for the right job. Stories of making good, no matter what.
