ABOUT
THE STORY

When May, a famous playwright, posts a vitriolic rant on Facebook, it goes viral and her agent and producers demand that she recant.  She refuses to do so despite the pleadings of her daughter, who has already been affected by the rant post and her ex-wife who wants May to protect her career.  It's a question of ethics vs. cancel culture.  May's agent has set up a press conference for her to recant.  What will she do?
