When hypochondriac Natalie falls in love with chronically ill Sam, she doesn't know how to manage his Cystic Fibrosis. As their relationship begins to disintegrate amidst Sam's new online relationship with another CF patient, Clara, the three of them struggle to reconcile issues of connection, fear, hope, and loneliness together.

Summer's play is packed with a talented cast including Marcella Pereda as Natalie, John Lampe as Sam, Danielle Purdy as Clara, and Elyse Steingold as Therapist/CVS Checker.
