It’s New Year’s Eve 1992. With a dreamlike plot film-obsessed Danny Fleming watching an old movie at the video store where he works.

When he wanders into the back room, Meredith O'Connor appears at the window then sneaks in and hides behind a rack of tapes in order to jump out and surprise Danny. These two haven't seen each other in 20 years, since they were in eighth grade.

Danny's dreams of being a writer are all but forgotten, and Meredith's two decades as a nun have taken a different direction; for Meredith it’s reminiscent of Maria Von Trapp and for Danny it is making a big splash owning his own cinema. What hasn’t changed is the past---when they were in eighth grade.

Featured in this heartfelt love story are local actors Timothy Benson and Sarah LeClair Klacka with direction by Jerry Pilato and technical direction by Jay Maloney. Located at the Historic Point Loma Assembly.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
