WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Told through reverse chronology in Depression-era New York City with layered scenes in a nearby town house one generation later, Charles Waxberg's The Equation engages the audience in a "how-done-it" about a birth rather than a death.

Has this dream devolved into the pursuit of conspicuous wealth, and at what cost?
