“I want to know you. I want to crawl underneath your skin…We are different, but deep down, very deep down, we have a shared language, a shared way of reading the world. If I could truly know you, then I could understand the world and my place in it.”

Set in Minneapolis in 1883, this poetic drama explores one week in the lives of Cyrus and Lottie Finch, a stalwart couple who take in two vagabond lovers from the South. The unlikely pairs’ intersection unearths their deep-seated desires – ones which they fight to keep buried.
