Sometimes death has the most to teach us about life. Ruben wakes to find that his cousin has died by suicide on a hot Darwin morning.

What follows is the story of a family, buffeted by constant tragedy, holding itself together – as their people have done generation after generation. This play asks us: how do we deal with death? And how many other people does it take for each of us to live? Little by little, Ruben’s family brings him back from the edge.
