After the death of their mother, siblings Max and Kate have not seen each other since. Now, Kate is about to get married and so Max decides to take a trip back down to hell, AKA his father's farm. To Max's surprise, Kate's fiancé, Michael has taken over the place and is tending to the cows with his brother Joshua. As a result, tensions will rise as the city boy faces his estranged family in ways that may divide them before the wedding. Fake smiles can't last long as the characters uncover each other's secrets.

Using specific movement and improvisational exercises the body will become the genesis for character and story development.
