When you were a kid, did you ever fantasize about running away from home? Perhaps you believed your parents were uncaring or unfair. Maybe you had a sibling who made your life miserable.
I thought a lot about disappearing when I was in my teens. You know, pack it all up and split. Head to Woodstock, even, except that I was a year shy of legal at that point. Still, the temptation was almost irresistible. In the end, though, I knew that I didn’t have a good enough reason to act on it.
But what if you really did have a good enough reason? One that spurred you to travel halfway across the country, change your name and fabricate a backstory that no one—not your spouse, your kids, your friends—would ever think was anything but the truth?
Secrets come at a cost. Sometimes, more than we’re prepared to pay.
The action takes place at the Weston apartment in downtown Chicago, the Williamson house in Queens, New York, and at a nearby park.
