Seven high school friends witness their relationships disintegrate after their post-Homecoming game caravan has a mysterious encounter on a deserted highway. Earlier at the game, they played a prank on Walden, a high school outcast who recently relocated from another planet, and they blame him for the accident as they try to piece together the rupture in time and memory loss they have experienced. But, Caleb is growing sick of his long-time friends' attitudes, and must make a choice.

Told in reverse chronological order, this play explores friendship, estrangement, and the unusual bond of two teenagers who tackle the cost of alienation.
