Georgia. October,1864, during Sherman's March to the Sea. Sherman is now waging war against civilians and soldiers alike, as the North begins its final offensive. Our four characters are caught in the path of Sherman's army, each of them facing the destruction of the world they know. The play deals with crossing borders: north/ south, black/ white, child/ adult, freedwoman/ slave, and portrays the intimacy and human cost of war. The play is about friendship, dying, the search for forgiveness, the hope for redemption, and the power of the human spirit in the face of utter desolation.

"Harrington's characters come together at play's end, pulling the individual stories together so seamlessly for a touching and remarkably redemptive conclusion..." —TheatreMirror
