Sunrise at the American Market

In that most modest and unsuspecting place, a convenience store, a few people met for coffee each morning. In time, friendships and commitments emerged unlike anything they had ever known. The Market became that safe place we seek, freed of judgment and guilt, liberated from one’s externally imposed identity, an extraordinary place where things begin to happen. Questions of fidelity, fate, and compassionate life termination become central and transformative. Ultimately, the sunrise group becomes that best of all families, a family of choice, as the Market emerges as a true home, central to each character, essential to their best and most decent hopes.
