Dramatic Comedy

One evening, in a quiet nursery, a young mother, Lisa Marie, attempts a sudden act of violence. Several months later, upon her release from a mental hospital, her three cousins, the Scarletta girls, gather at the Cherrywood amusement park, just below the Ferris wheel, to celebrate her homecoming. Toni, a flamboyant hairdresser, and her sister, Celia, a conservative mother of two, hang balloons, banners and a small transistor radio from a tree. Babs, the glamorous cousin, arrives in high heels and carrying a six-pack. As the girls listen to Motown, and prepare for Lisa's arrival, they discuss the proper behavior for spending time with one who is "recovering." When Lisa finally arrives, the girls share a wild and heartbreaking afternoon in the park. These are four very passionate women, whose lives unfold to create a moving, hilarious look at the male-dominated society of the Italian family in the early 1970s. One ext. set. Approximate running time: 90-95 minutes.
