Narrated by a group of alien archaeologists, the play follows a suburban family sliding into dysfunction as the patriarch succumbs to Alzheimer's disease, a daughter moves back home after leaving her husband and her son runs away and ends up sleeping in shopping malls. Tripping over their own efforts, the family's search for love parallels the quest of alien visitors to understand our absurd human world.
