The characters in the monologues that make up a Leap seek a home, some kind of anchorage or self realization, but circumstances or fate ensure that their goal remains elusive. Cato and Leenderf are a pair of young lovers in Rotterdam during the spring of 1940. As bombs rain down on the city, Cato roams the streets in desperation, searching for Leendert, who didn't show up for their meeting... In the next monologue, a doctor amid the same bombs and chaos finds himself faced with a dilemma when a wounded German general enters his O.R. The general's fate is in his hands... Thirty years before this, Jewish dressmaker Mendel Bronstein decides to try his chances in the new world, but the journey from Rotterdam proves too much for his disintegrating mind. In her home in Vienna, Alma Mahler reflects on her past with her husband Gustav, the famous composer. Having given up her own musical ambitions and borne his children, she is torn between her husband and the man who was once her lover... In the final monologue, a young woman, Sara, spends a night in her parent's home-which she enjoys only because they are away. She has come through a difficult year, both romantically and socially, and now a period of vibrant happiness seems to be dawning.
