Storyline

Cassandra, a mute runaway girl, takes refuge in the cemetery in which her mother is laid to rest. She is watched over by Jorge, the cemetery caretaker, an illegal alien who is committed to the restoration of a classic '60 cadillac hearse. Shore is a dynamic, handsome, and brilliant young man who also happens to be homeless. After almost hitting Cassandra in his dilapidated VW bus, he becomes fascinated by the gothic cemetery waif and attempts to befriend her. A sequence of events results in Cass getting lost. Jorge and Shore flee the cemetery in a stolen hearse to find Cassandra before her abusive step-father does. All paths lead to Yermo - the site of a roadside diner and a feisty but compassionate transvestite waitress named Lola. Written by Lisa Savy James

Adorable
5 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought the story in this film was interesting and by the end I found the story adorable. It really captured my attention, the characters were quirky and fun, it all came together in its oddity. I'd recommend this to people who just want something different for a change. The film has actors and actresses who are honing their craft. It may have a few flaws but what film doesn't, even big budget films have flaws. Overlook those small flaws and ride with the story it is delightful. I think the most outstanding character was the Lola character. I think the dialog for Lola fit her character perfectly. The tag line for the film is well suited since it has a bit of a dark humor to the story. Great Job.
