A NORTHERN STAR
Francisco Solórzano | United States | Fiction | 2017 | 13 min

SYNOPSIS

A lost little boy. An old soul nursing old wounds. One life wanders into a nursing home and finds the other, a long-retired actress who enlists her fellow residents in a grand, kaleidoscopic symphony of sprawling Shakespearean performance, resulting in an explosive, life-affirming exchange of past and present joys…the lasting effect of which will undoubtedly, for both, prove as bright and constant as the Northern Star

Español
Un niño perdido. Un alma vieja curando viejas heridas. Una vida entra en un hogar de ancianos y encuentra a la otra, una actriz retirada hace mucho tiempo que reúne a sus compañeros del hogar en una gran sinfonía de actuación de Shakespeare, que resulta en un explosivo intercambio de alegrías pasadas y presentes, cuyo efecto resultará, para ambos, tan brillante y permanente como la Estrella del Norte
