This is a play that reflects on some of the issues of women/ men everywhere, which for one reason or another has tried to hide from the realities of his/her life. There are four main characters, each with a background of domestic violence. The common factor is how each character portrays that level of violence in his or her life. All four characters have to face the realities of their world. Based on their level of faith and trust in God. They come to realize that pain has no respect of person.
