A nun is missing in the city of Chicago. A mosque has been desecrated. Detectives Connolly and Garza’s investigation will take them from a German convent in the 900’s to the Twin Towers in 2001, and deep into their own divided community. This is a play about religion. This is a play about violence. This is a play about faith. What do you believe?
