synopsis
Mabel is a Native American grandmother who lives alone, tending her drought-ravaged corn in the desert Southwest. Her half-Hispanic grandson, Third, dreams of making it big in LA, but his plans change dramatically when he comes to his grandmotherís house to collect traditional dolls he hopes to sell for a high price. Lyle is a down-at-the-heel magician from LA traveling with a white rabbit, the promise of a gig and a life-long dream to be able to magically disappear. When his radiator boils over, he is stranded outside Mabelís house. Both men must yield to the timeless rhythm of Mabel and the expansive desert to discover a capacity greater than imagined.

director
Jennifer Corcoran: Six years ago, I was prompted by a vision to create a cycle of films about women and their relationship to the indefinable, what lies beyond the veil of enculturation. Women are bearers of life, and with this comes a natural capacity to nourish in the way we are all nourished by the Earth. The beauty of our diversity can be celebrated only when we acknowledge that we are, integrally, all related. And in this collective, womenís voices are still missing. Balance yearns to be re-created. Having lived in several countries, in different languages, I have come to believe that anything is possible. With a BA and MFA in Directing for Theatre, I have worked on stage, for a documentary producer and made super-8 shorts. I home educated my three children, write and photograph, listen. Together with my brother, She Sings to the Stars producer, Jonnie Corcoran, I am currently developing the second film of the cycle to be shot in Ireland.
