The work takes place on the abandoned piers of Hoboken and is inspired by the writings of Whitman, Cervantes and Julia de Burgos. It's billed as "a partially surreal tale involving the decision a psychologist must make about whether or not to join a workers' strike at the New York hospital that employs her." With her best friend "and their semi-real love interests/mentors, Don Quick and Sancho, who respectively appear as a wandering professor and a Union organizer, she confronts questions of meaning and direction in her life."
