"Concord Floral" is a one-million-square-foot abandoned greenhouse, and a refuge for neighborhood teens; a place all to themselves where they can throw parties, experiment, dream, and come of age. But hidden there is a secret no one wants to confront, and when Rosa and Nearly stumble upon it they set off a chain of events that include phone calls from the grave. It’s time for the teenagers of Concord Floral to start talking.

The University currently requires everyone to wear a mask/face covering while in indoor public areas across all campuses. Masks/facial coverings continue to be required outdoors for unvaccinated individuals when they cannot maintain social distancing.
