The story follows the strained sexual relationship between Li'l Bit and her aunt's husband, Uncle Peck, from her adolescence though her teenage years to college and beyond. Using the metaphor of driving and issues of paedophilia, incest and misogyny, the play explores the idea of control and manipulation.
