A Youth Performance Collaboration with Brava Theater Academy and SF Mime Troupe T.N.T. Youth Arts Festival has one main goal: to partner younger, less experienced actors and technicians with professional theater practitioners at both organizations. The collaboration creates powerful new theater pieces with an authentic youth voice. TNT Youth Arts Festival was developed to garner mentored relationships for particpants that would go beyond the Festival and create a new inspired, eclectic generation of theater artists.

The story begins when a female writer is detained by her local government. Two government clerks are sent to interrogate her, and a human rights vs. government conflict emerges. In essence, "Over the Mountain" is about family - those created by birth and those developed by choice. It shows the human spirit at its worst and best. It also shows how the family we are born into can shape us, but may not define us.

Henry has just found out this ex is expecting a child he doesn't want. He tries all kinds of avenues in his desperate attempt to get his ex to change her mind, ignoring the growing feeling that it's not his ex's ideas about kids that are about to change. How do fathers -- who don't want to be fathers, who are not treated as fathers, and yet have fathered a child -- struggle to accept what
they've become? And how does the world struggle to accept them?
