On a scorching night in a Riverside motel, Archie, a queer Black man at the ends of several ropes, upends his life yet again to save his half-brother Nick from the rock bottom of a cross-county bender. As painful memories of their upbringing under their father’s rules threaten to bubble over, they recall the imaginary world they created as children to help them make it through the days.

They meet other motel residents along the way who are coping with their own painful pasts, just the same. A fantastical play with pirates, aliens, and a winged puppy named Hannah, about overcoming the pains of life and ending the cycle of running from your past.
