Based on the play “Sonnets for an Old Century” by Jose Rivera
When the time comes and we witness injustice, will we take a stand against it? Even with the best intentions, when confronted we often run. We run because it is our instinct. We run because of our apathy. We run because we lack the courage to sacrifice ourselves for another.
“Sonnet” is an exploration of a single moment of injustice and how one character’s inability to take action leaves behind an unseen wound carried for life. This is a story about how we make amends for the moment we chose not to act when we were needed most.
