Set in the DC community of Anacostia, a group of residents responds to a proposed revitalization project that threatens to gentrify the neighborhood. At the center of the action is Alvin, who has just returned to his old neighborhood, with a charge to sell the community on this idea. Over the two days, residents confront their own ever-changing relationships in a musical that challenges the historic character and soul of our teeming city.
