A writer urges a star to come down to earth and collaborate with him on a play. As they experiment with potential narrative, the writer scrambles to find meaning following the trauma of being raped by another man, while the star battles with the memory of her own incarnation as a human hundreds of years ago, when she was burned as a witch. What the writer could never have imagined, was how deeply his own story is connected with the star's. A moving, poignant exploration of the human condition, featuring song and physical theatre.
