This tells the story of four friends designated for Broadway, until an accident changed everything. When the show’s writer died, the project spiraled out of control and each went on a new path. Ten years later, each receives an anonymous script in the mail calling them back to the stage. Who sent the script and why? Is this the moment they’ve long-dreamed of?
