Sometimes life leaves you hanging. After the passing of her parents, Sara (Melissa Fahn) finds herself hanging by a thread... and a wire. Her seemingly frivolous search to find an emotional foothold via her first childhood crush, Charlie Katz (Charlie McGowan), leads her to a community production of 'Peter Pan', where her desire to find a sense of stability is complicated by a dashing Jules/Capt. Hook (Sam Zeller) and his young, flexible sidekick, Trina/Tiger Lily (Heather Phillips), as well as by Peter Pan himself. Inspired by true stories.
