A cinematic filming of the original stage play written & directed by Christine Stoddard, as performed at the Gene Frankel Theatre in New York City in June 2022.

About the story:

Maya, a young Salvadoran-American woman, navigates trauma and family mythology through magic and folklore as she comes of age in Phoenix, Arizona. Her story explores mother-daughter relationships, mixed race identity, being the first-generation child of an immigrant, growing up without a father, and fantasy as a coping mechanism, while featuring movement and dance. And there are owls, jaguars, and cacti—oh, my!

*Trigger warning: This play references sexual assault and suicide.
