"You wanna film me Timmy?
You wanna film me now?
You ever do anything again,
And I will follow you to the end of the world.
Like a ghost.
Like your dead ancestors.
The world is on fire."


Jon has just lost his daughter.

Tim can't leave his office.


Jon has just bought a gun.

Tim still can't leave his office. 

Not yet.


Kate is just trying to get through the day.


One drop of sweat.

One little squeeze.

One drop of blood.

One little bullet.


Holy Land is a play about the darker side of human nature-

How little control we have-

And how much of it we can take.


Jon - Rick Romero
