Set in Zapata, TX, the lives of a single mother, Jesse, and her teenage son are turned upside down one night when a wounded, undocumented immigrant breaks into their trailer home. As Jesse covertly takes in the immigrant, she has to go to increasingly complicated lengths to hide her secret from the various people in her life, including a border patrol agent with a crush and her video game addicted teenage son.
The play contains strong language and mature themes. Parental discretion is strongly advised.
