Dead End Kids by Brian Leahy Doyle

Directed by Sydnie Grosberg Ronga
The U Drop Inn. Taos, New Mexico. A slow Sunday night in the not-too-distant future. Moe, the bartender, is polishing glasses. Miriam, the waitress, is leafing through her volume of the illustrated Kabbalah. Mickey, the protagonist of our story, dreams of Maude, the love of his life who mysteriously left him. When Maude briefly passes through the U Drop Inn Mickey is forced to make a decision. Time for a road trip…

Dante in the Big-Box Store
by Richard Gotti

Unmoored by the death of his wife, sinking in an ill-timed retirement, the contentious Professor Ray finds himself in one more hell: searching for a rubber-backed rug in a big-box store. Enter supervisor Eva. Enter Dante. Forces converge and an exit appears from hell to healing—but will Ray take it?
