The Marquee, Union South
In a Southern California hospital in the 1920s, an injured and heartbroken movie stuntman (Pace) entrances a fellow patient - a seven-year-old immigrant girl (Untaru, in one of the greatest of all child performances) - with an elaborate tale of romance and adventure worthy of Scheherezade. Together, they form a bond while using their imaginations to escape the sometimes troubling real world.
