WANDA, DAISY AND THE GREAT RAPTURE

SYNOPSIS

It's a sticky, hot summer on the fictional island of Crawley, South Carolina. Step-sisters Wanda and Daisy struggle to get by as the people they love disappear; Wanda’s mother has recently died, and Daisy’s father is fading away as his mysterious illness worsens, and an obsession with the impending rapture intensifies. The girls try and repair their fractured relationship, and find a little light.  A magical story about how we hold onto family, the past, and ourselves while we seek better lives, and wait patiently as the Great Rapture hails us--or doesn’t.
