Life starts to get complicated for comic artist, Maddie Sternberg, when grandmother Esther pops up uninvited with a trunk full of family photos and warm potato latkes. When Maddie falls for a hot messenger guy who just happens to be German, things get even more surreal in this darkly comic play about love, sex, heritage and letting go.
