The story of one woman's search for sexual abuse in her past. "Myatt's tale [is] a journey into childhood secrets and family dysfunction. Mary lives in Chicago and works as a bank teller. She has an appetite for sexual encounters but none for intimacy. Her behavior plagues and bewilders her, so she sets out to uncover whatever dark secrets are haunting her and causing her to act out. Mary returns to her family for a surprise visit, where she is treated to the controlling antics of her Midwestern Martha Stewart mom, the creepy doting of her tire salesman dad, and the freaked-out competition from her indolent, dope-smoking sister. While she interrogates each family member, including her black-sheep felon brother, she is unable to uncover much evidence of any sexual abuse. This leaves her in even deeper despair and confusion, as she is at a loss to explain her empty promiscuity. Her sister suggests she may simply have an active, healthy libido. Mary takes this suggestion to a more pathological level, wondering whether pretty girls like her simply have a need to be constantly touched." -Hoyt Hilsman, Backstage
