Description

In the year following a brutal school shooting, Justice Mayflower keeps her 12-year-old granddaughter, Portia, nestled safe at home in their garden. But their little cocoon is ruptured when Gabriel, a vibrant young Mexican, moves in next door with skulls and a shovel. Rumors ripple throughout the town, Mayflower clings onto her authority and, in the middle of the night, Gabriel teaches Portia how to face death and celebrate life through Dia de los Muertos.

Written by Jennifer Barclay
