Based on a true story. After a bad decision and a tragic twist of fate, a white man from an affluent, New Jersey town ends up in Rikers Island, completely out of his element. He struggles to navigate his way through the penal system in the company of his cellmates, a religious fanatic, a hardened drug dealer, and a transgender junkie. Beyond the jail politics, he must reconcile the need to fight for his survival with the guilt that consumes his every waking hour. Will he make it out for his tee time?

"This was a very meaningful play...I hope they find their way to another venue!"
