All the characters of the play belong to a minority group: gays, Jews, Mormons. The play talks about the “great journey” that most of the characters are on, that of reevaluating their destiny and trying to face it.

A two-part production. The two performances are linked by their theme as well as characters, however, since they have different plots, they can be viewed separately.
