Alix D. Smith stars as Magdalen McElhinny, a storyteller-for-hire who plies her trade from a barstool, where for cash, she regales disillusioned businessmen, frustrated writers and lonely barflies with exquisite tales of pathos and passion. But as she provides a glimmer of hope to her customers, she struggles to come to terms with her own fractured family, including her filmmaker father. Andrew Repasky McElhinney directs.
