Grease Stains, Kismet, and Maternal Wisdom is the whimsical, emotional, often reckless love story that we’ve all had or wish we’ve had. The tale follows David and Samantha, two virtual strangers from opposite coasts united for a week in autumn-cloaked Massachusetts, as they experience each other as only they know how. Sometimes shy, nervous strangers, other times merged as a single, physical being, the two dance for us the clock winds down and their reality bends but never breaks, sometimes odd, sometimes beautiful things bursting from the creases.
