About the Screenplay

The first feature, The Girl With 35 Names, spans Molly’s childhood and early adulthood, charting her discovery of the magic of her ancestral line, her coming to terms with her emerging powers, and concludes with her forced exile from Russia.

The sequel begins with Molly’s immigration to America, along with her new husband, Sam. As we follow Molly and Sam in their exile, we experience the challenges, and surprises, of America at the turn of the twentieth century. We are brought on a journey of heartbreak, community, and hope, as Molly slowly but surely infuses her new American home with some Old World magic
