What if you committed a crime and were allowed to get away with it? A young woman is thrilled when her victim's boyfriend, and then their whole group of friends, not only forgive her but also welcome her into their circle. At first she takes this for granted, however as she's affected by their kindness her conscience is aroused – to the point where she craves a chance to atone. But what are they really doing? If it's not as simple as mercy, if they're not using her to fill the victim's place, then perhaps they're exacting a punishment far more intimate.

The play asks us to consider the complex theme of guilt and punishment and question what it means to really forgive.
