"Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart," according to press notes. "Beaten down by ill-fated love and a ruthless struggle for identity, can they ultimately live with, or without, each other?"

The creative team included Dane Laffrey (scenic design), Anita Yavich (costume design), Justin Townsend (lighting design), Ryan Rumery (sound design) and David S. Leong (movement and fights).
