SYNOPSIS
A story of the Weston family, all of whose members are intelligent, sensitive creatures who have the uncanny ability of making each other absolutely miserable.

At the Goa house of the Westons, the patriarch, Leon, goes missing. The family gathers together hoping for good news, but, after five days, his body is found in a lake, a presumed suicide. The play takes us through the family’s pain, not just over Leon’s’s death, but of living in a very dysfunctional family for many years.
