Giebel's new play, according to press notes, is about the following: "After serving a 10 year prison sentence, a young woman returns home to the scene of the horrific events that ended with the destruction of her family. As she searches for a way to make peace with her past, new revelations and unexpected reunions clash with her memories of her childhood. She finally begins to realize that although life dealt her a losing hand, there may still be a chance to turn it all around; it all depends on how she plays her cards."
