Catherine is a professor's widow, living as a hermit in Austin, TX, the object of much gossip and suspicion in her neighborhood, due to events surrounding her husband's death. Arturo is a Cuban refugee, a writer turned gardener, summoned to tame Catherine's chaotic back yard. Both are haunted by the ghosts of their previous lives, and both are victims of actions done in service of survival. Through an intense afternoon and evening, Arturo and Catherine will embark on a journey through their deepest fears and desires, and ultimately, find themselves on the shore of a new beginning.
