(Synopsis and Theme)
The hospital air conditioner is in need of service again. 4 bodies awaiting identification and autopsy, wake up at the morgue, in anticipation of the afterlife, if there is one. They have as much human consciousness as they have warmth. In and out of awareness, the audience amble and hasten with
them through their dreams, memories, fears and revelations.

What happens when the air conditioner is finally repaired and the cold temperature is restored ?
