When Victor abandoned Sass, he destroyed her belief in the power of their bond to protect them from their brutal beginnings. When he returns many years later to reclaim his sister's love, he finds her childless and alone, no longer believing in any kind of love.

An unnerving and controversial play about concepts of love, taboos, and human frailty.

EXTRACT: You're all like a disease. A disease I caught when I was born. You didn't have to stand by and watch! Why didn't you protect me? Why did you leave? Where were you? And this house... this grave... now you crawl into my grave with me? Get out! Get out of my heart!
