What happens when Nina, a Korean American architect, married to Miles, an African American dot.com producer, moves with their baby into a Brooklyn neighborhood that’s resisting gentrification? What happens when parenthood, work, and culture clash in a melting pot that’s melting down?

What happens when a society must rebuild itself after an environmental disaster and social collapse? What happens over 75 years when surviving “tribes” inject meaning into their lives by recovering from memory the TV series that bound them together before the Fall? This musical tragi-comedy asks: When communities are under assault from the forces of darkness will their performances unite them?
