George Matry Masselam
Two sisters, one who is terminally ill, struggle to find freedom from the troubled relationships with the men in their lives. Both take risks with the help of each other, wine, and pure courage. The play is funny, heart-warming, sad and touching. They don't find it easy to let go of situations they are accustomed to, but which limit their happiness. Still, both sisters, amidst setbacks and obstacles, find their freedom.
