This allegorical rock musical weaves a tale of senseless violence, heart wrenching despair and resurgence of the human spirit. In New York, love blooms between a woman who has had to flee from an abusive husband and a budding rock musician whose mother was slain by street hoodlums. The lovers' developing relationship engenders an atmosphere of renewed optimism until urban violence erupts again, changing lives forever. The show ends with a cry for peace and hope.
