Synopsis

Theo Turner is a young cosmologist on the verge. But Theo's "big bang" isn't theoretical. His universe explodes when he and his wife travel to the Appalachian South to visit his parents with news of an impending adoption, only to discover that Theo's aging parents are now meth addicts. Science crashes violently into nature, identities shift, memories speak and the future can only be won by renegotiating the past. The cosmos is no more wondrous than a troubled human family improvising its path into the future. Qualities of Starlight is an award-winning twisted comedy about the expansion of the universe and the contraction of a troubled family.
