2013 Cinetopia Spirit Award (Narrative) winner! With special guests! Bright and shiny Christa Richmond is at the top of her class and the world. She delivers the valedictory speech at her university commencement, then heads home to celebrate and conquer the rest of the universe…only to discover that the next 24 hours is the beginning of her real education. Starting with a relationship crisis and a roadside emergency, Christa’s well-organized plans unravel in funny and unexpected ways, beginning with a prickly tow-truck guy and discoveries from the family and friends who have gathered for her graduation party. Her loving but troubled parents can’t keep their struggles from erupting in ways that challenge Christa’s security while her quirky grandparents remind her that “people will surprise you” and that learning to dance through life’s detours might be the best education of all. (Presented as a work in progress.)
