Ray skips town on a mysterious mission, only to come back home and find that his Eloise has been sitting by the side of the road for three days‚ as long as he's been gone. But what better place for a 16-year-old girl to figure out who she is and where she stands in the scheme of things than under the big sky that stretches across a great rolling plain, her painted face exposed to the forces of weathering from sun and wind and sudden violent rain? A lyrical, bittersweet tale of a coming of age.

Published Reviews

"A feminist Sam Shepard with a gift for complicated narrative -- a writer who can conjure something between a dreamy road movie and a theatrical coming-of-age tale, and who can piece these elements together in the style of a jagged ballad for guitar."

Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times

"SEASON HIGHLIGHT: A finely detailed, layered portrait."

Francine Russo, The Village Voice

"[Fleischmann's] drama keeps you watching and listening, and ready for surprises."

Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
