Are there cosmic truths? Harry thinks there are and he's discovered one which will make life easier, simpler and more fulfilling. He wants to share this epiphany with those he loves but not only do they not want to share in his enlightenment, they feel threatened by what he has to tell them. Much is at stake - careers, lifestyles, power - if Harry pursues his truth. For Deidre, his wife - all her life she has worked to overcome the stigma of being the daughter of the neighbourhood drunk. She has struggled for social status, "respectability" and to have "nice things." Now she has attained it and more is within her grasp. She can't allow Harry to jeopardize it. For Philip, his partner - his aggressive manner, lack of sophistication, short stature, balding pate, pudgy midriff and loud ties have made him a subject of derision among his colleagues, but landing this multi-million dollar client will change all that. Soon Harry's condescension and the humiliation of his marriage will be overshadowed by the respect and power corporate success will bring. The "truth" is he only needs Harry to keep it together until the deal closes. After that, he can goddam well wander off into the wilderness if that's what he wants. For Joan, Phil's wife - the bitterness of her affair with Harry twenty years ago in college has shaped and defined her life, But not Harry's. No, he just up and left her in search for "the truth" and she had to survive as best she could on her own. Now he's about to do it again - turn her world upside down with the same selfish, irresponsible behavior. Maybe she can't stop this middle-age flight of fancy but she isn't going to let him influence her teenage daughter with all his nonsense about "following your heart." For Alexus, Joan's daughter - her parent's marriage is empty of love but filled with material possessions. How could "Uncle Harry's" truth make anything worse? Her mom's pushing her to go to college but that's just more "preparing for life." Uncle Harry's truth sounds far more appealing. Better to fill your life with experiences than just more "stuff."
