Orphaned by the 1967 collapse of the Silver Bridge in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, Sissy scrapes together a living digging up medicinal roots while her brother Howie is lost in his own little world, and his all-consuming search for the elusive Mothman. When an agent from the National Park Service arrives with information about a rare plant, Sissy sees a path toward building a better home for her family, as long as she can elude the secret passions threatening to upend her last-ditch effort. In this world premiere by playwright Levi Shrader, faith, family, and the supernatural order of reality are all tested amidst one woman's struggle to construct a new life.
