Vera is a 91 year old ex-hippie activist. Leo, her grandson, who has just completed a bicycle ride across America, arrives at her Manhattan apartment at 3am, unexpected, exhausted, smelly.
Leo is a bit of a rebel. Rather than going to college, he’s achieved the altruistic ambition of celebrating the 4th July right in the centre of the country. But he’s carrying the burden of something that horrific that has happened along the way.
