In the northern skies, a haunting display of beauty brings some hope.

Grief overtakes her

She is driven by a grieving that takes over her soul and body.

Communal healing through the washing of clothes.

A decade later, the stains on the clothing represent the grieving of the community.

In the end

There is a sense of reconciliation and healing.

This play about the terrorist attack that blew up an airplane and devastated a Scottish village, is structured like a Greek tragedy.  The women of the town form a chorus and a mother returns ten years after the event to search for her son's bones.  Communal healing is found through the washing of the victims' clothing.
