Travis, a senior in high school, is pretty miserable. The girl he's in love with doesn't know he exists, his father is leaving his mother, and his older brother has been deployed to Iraq. All he really wants to do is make it through high school, but that's easier said than done. Erynne, a rebellious punk girl, would probably think Travis has it easy. She's been kicked out of her house and is living in a mini-van and her boyfriend is thinking about dumping her.  Even though they have class together at school, Travis and Erynne don't know each other. And whether or not they find each other will determine if they live through the night.  A play about dealing with tragedy and the strength necessary to survive, all in the search for just one good thing.
