Following the death of their father, the family bravely confronts the tragic discrepancies between yearnings and reality, and a saga unfolds about the vital importance of staying true to oneself while struggling with the burden of everyday life. The play examines the hierarchal and emotional effects of losing their status and wealth while coming to terms with changes in modern society."
