Meyer Jacobs wants grandchildren, but God has conspired against him. Meyer has had a stroke and lost the use of one hand, so the entire world must suffer with him, including his pro-Palestinian son, his Serbian caregiver, and his absent, lesbian daughter. Entrenched in his opinions, Meyer knows how everything should be regardless of what everyone else thinks. Beset by guilt, however, he lights Yahrzeit candles in memory of his late wife and is secretly sending money to Israel to plant a forest for her. Meanwhile, his son's marriage is collapsing, his caregiver is giving him tsuris, his missing daughter shows up with only a bus ticket, and a boy scout is on the loose in his building. Sooner or later, something's going to crack and when it does, Meyer will find that life has a few surprises left in store. Alex Poch-Goldin's moving, funny, and brilliant play explores conflict in the family against a backdrop of global conflict. With peace as the ultimate destination, there's a long journey to get there.
