This story unfolds through a series of nine vignettes, all of which take place on a magical midwinter night, with the Northern Lights dancing through the sky.  The citizens of Almost, Maine discover the life-altering power of the human heart. Strangers become friends, friends become lovers, and lovers turn into strangers. It’s a play about discovery, the exploring of connections and relationships, and what brings us together as people.
