Brett just stopped for some coffee as he's been driving nonstop all night. Headed for Key West, he meets his halfway-point at a South Carolina Waffle House as he contemplates his last attempt to save his estranged son, Jesse, from self-destructive behavior. As Brett stirs in this Waffle House, he befriends a local, and possibly delusional, college dropout, along with an employee spending her precious energy trying to save everyone, but herself.
As Brett tries to make sense of his shortcomings as a father, the two locals attempt to empathize through their own experiences of life's barrage of chaos. As the play progresses, the nature of parental absolutism is explored through Brett and Jesse, and Brett’s burgeoning understanding of moral relativity is challenged as he resists to accept uncertainty and chaos in the world he's built for himself.
