1902 – Two Kentucky spinster sisters struggle against the suffocating loneliness inherent in their cloistered existence, until swept into a thrilling yet bizarre courtship by a world-famous mesmerist and his assistant. But Fate intervenes in this tender adventure, with lingering confusions, confessions, and tears in the night. An award-winning comic drama, described by the Chicago Sun Times as “… a whimsical blend of Chekhov and Mark Twain.”
