The night before her bridal shower in Appalachia, Hannah goes out for a drink only to be drugged and raped by a stranger. As she struggles to deal with wedding planning, doctors, policemen and self-forgiveness, her story intertwines with two other women. Her mother-in-law's past becomes present when she discovers Hannah's horrible secret, and a mythical Grandma Gatewood (the first woman to walk the Appalachian Trail) serves as a spiritual guide to Hannah and her fiance Jaime as they attempt to heal their relationship. The story is told out of chronological order revealing scenes before and after the assault, which is never shown on stage.
Sometimes defiant, sometimes lyrical, the play examines rape culture and the way rape repeats from generation to generation.
