1. Ice cream. 2. Water fights. 3. Staying up past your bedtime and being allowed to watch TV. These are just a few items on a list of things worth living for compiled by a young girl trying to ease her mother's depression. As the girl grows older and the list grows longer, she learns the deep significance the list has on her own life and the irrepressible resilience inside all of us.

In this heartbreaking and hilarious one-person show, the audience becomes a custodian of the list, a conductor of light and laughter, and collaborators in the creation the afternoon's story.
