Outsized personalities, emotions, and imaginations take center stage
Outsized personalities and imaginations take center stage in this shorts program. Whether loud or quiet, these chaos agents lash with impulsive words and rash actions that they may regret later. Their emotions are easily available to them and wholly apparent to those around them, but in the end that just means they have lots of heart. Featuring an anxious trip to the movies, a hyper-domestic flight of fancy, a mad-dash across state lines to seek an abortion, and a spicy tofu recipe that’ll heighten every emotion.
