It's been ten years since Claudia's mother died following a tragic collision with a banana boat. Her kids are now teenagers, her brother's wife has left him, and her ex has had a spiritual awakening that has him hinting at reconciliation--all things she can handle. But when her septuagenarian father decides to remarry after a brief courtship with a decidedly different woman than their mother, the entire family is thrown off course, and plans a long overdue memorial trip to the only place their mother ever dreamed of going: Paris. However, minutes after take-off, the trip takes an unpredictable turn and sets off a chain of events that threaten to derail the closure the family desperately seeks. Chance meetings, poolside confessions, run-ins with mimes, climate protests, and a man with a death wish force Claudia to reconsider everything she thought she knew about love, both the familial and the romantic, the tragic and the sublime and to answer the ultimate question: how well do we really know those closest to us? And, how well do we really know ourselves? Coq is a darkly comedic contemporary family drama that explores grief, identity, and second chances in the one-and-only city of love.
