In present-day Chicago, Xtigone mourns the death of her brothers, moved down by a rival gang. Instead of dealing with the reality of violence in the city's streets, her uncle intends to bury the bodies without investigation. Will Xtigone risk death by opposing her uncle? Using Hip-Hop, poetry, dance, and dialogue that speaks with an urban voice, this re-imagining of Sophocles' Antigone tells the story of the ill-fated Xtigone and her quest for her community's truth.
