From Off-Broadway

David,a man in his 60s, has returned to Mt. Denali leading a group of Japanese tourists who hope to conceive children under the Northern Lights. David carries a bit of baggage about his own son, who died years before in a motorcycle accident. His trip up the mountain sends his mind careening through memories of his family's past, both happy and haunting. The climax of the play brings to light how important a life lived with a loving family truly is.
