synopsis
In the Blue Ridge Mountain town of Asheville, North Carolina, an artist named Christopher Mello has made a darkly beautiful garden that includes what he calls Shovelhenge, a blue bottle tree, and a new kind of poppy he has been hybridizing for over a decade. An artist who works with clay and steel, Christopher has placed a makeshift chalkboard outside the garden that proclaims, “Yes You May.” Many visitors to the garden have taken up the phrase as a sort of mantra, an opportunity to be inspired by Christopher’s life and give themselves permission to go out and live some aspect of their life long neglected.

director
William Torgerson is an Associate Professor in the Institute for Writing Studies at St. John’s University in Queens, New York. Writer Pat Conroy described William’s latest novel The Coach’s Wife as “One of the best books about basketball and coaching I’ve ever read with a love story so complicated book groups will be talking about it for years.” William’s adaptation of his first novel, Love on the Big Screen, won the grand prize of the Rhode Island International Film Festival Screenplay Competition.
