Florence has jumped off a bridge. Her brother and sister are forced to interrupt their lives to save her. It's 2008 and more than the economy is melting down. The story is told through the eyes of three siblings who are each facing their own crisis. Peter, a successful Wall Street Trader, is in New York, right in the middle of it all as things fall apart. Sara is in Seattle trying to hold on to her teaching job and her house. And their younger sister, Florence, is losing her grip on reality. Pieces are breaking away. Mental holograms crack into the fissures of her mind. The mysterious world of mental illness forces them all to choose how they will show up for each other and ultimately, for themselves. The story is humorously and passionately told though the eyes of each of the three siblings as they try and stay afloat.
