    Cynthia Kastakis is a brilliant high school senior whose father Gene, a polymer engineer, is serving as a staff member on the House Armed Services Committee in an effort to improve tank armor used by United States troops in the Middle East. When Gene becomes privy to a political battle over body armor – which he tries and fails to distance himself from - Cynthia begins questioning him, pressuring him to “do the right thing.” Her mother Alice’s focus is on Cynthia’s younger brother – the victim of a car accident. Alice is a pianist and Cynthia a budding cellist: the play is interspersed with cello and piano music that punctuate its emotional ebb and flow.
