Written by Ally Thomas (One Act)


What makes a house a home? On an apple orchard in a southeastern Michigan township, a single mother wrestles with a decision that could change the path of her family. As she decides what lengths she must go to in order to provide for her soon-to-be college-bound son, the lure of financial security might just be enough to leave their home.
