Falling from the Moon
Two young women face the harsh realities of growing up surrounded by direct action, marijuana culture, and baking bread in the woods.
25-year old Sapphire embarks on a quest to find her father, who vanished when she was ten and who, she believes, holds the key to her future. Her journey takes here to a peace and healing gathering where a community of counter-culture characters dispense advice and marijuana around late-night campfires. Along the way she hooks up with, Lauren, a pregnant environmental activist from California's North Coast trying to imagine a future that leaves her on the sidelines of tree sits and chaining herself to bulldozers, a Vietnam veteran with blood on his hands dedicated to helping others, and a teenage boy with mental health problems. Together, they create a future out of tragedy.
