At the center of the story is the relationship between the playwright and his mother, Sara, a strong-willed, very funny, and deeply romantic Russian-Jewish woman with a colorful and mysterious past. A cast of six actors travels 90 years and several continents in this surprising family saga – the mysteries of Istanbul, a forbidden WWII wartime romance, a gay boy growing up in the 1960s in a family of immigrants in West L.A., Greta Garbo’s face, dancing till dawn in Hollywood, and above all, the enduring power of lost love.
