A dynamic cast of narrators portrays the faithful and tight-lipped congregation of a Southside Chicago Church after a senseless murder leaves a child without a mother. Young congregant Ruby King is now at the mercy of her troubled father, Lebanon. He is voiced in a stunning performance by Adam Lazarre-White, whose smooth, deep baritone has an undercurrent as volatile as the generational trauma that fuels Lebanon's rage. Terra Strong Lyons takes on the role of Ruby's best friend, Layla. Lyons's tone is relentlessly optimistic and headstrong as Layla uncovers a secret that could free Ruby from Lebanon. In a surprising role, Ron Butler voices the omniscient church building. His performance is prescient and inquisitive as the church recounts the past and present tragedies that tie this grieving community together.
