The grown children are faced with the dilemma of what to do with the crumbling structure -- sister-in-law Jane wants to build tidy new houses- friend Olivia wants to build The Church of the Fifth Day honoring birds and the Fifth Day of creation- Ed wants to let the building fall to the ground. Folded into this debate are issues of religious conviction, fear of commitment, the way Russian ballet resembles a hockey game, and the courtship of Ed by Tom, a gay professional hockey player.
