The suicide of a young boy named Gidion pits mother against teacher in this dark drama. Over the course of a parent/teacher conference, the two have a fraught conversation about Gidion. Was he bullied severely or was he the abuser?

As his story is slowly uncovered, the women try to reconstruct a satisfying explanation for Gidion’s act and come to terms with excruciating feelings of culpability.

Featured readers are Julie Hanks and Anita Welch.
