Christy is a homeless, aging woman, living on the outskirts of suburbia. She is something of a celebrity, attracting the curiosity of the locals. Christy is not shy of an audience and amuses herself with telling anyone who’ll listen the story of her life. Her story is part truth, part fiction, and even Christy is no longer sure which is which. But beneath her wild exaggerations and fantastic tales of loves lost and struggles overcome there are truths that haunt her, certain events that she would rather forget but cannot.
Christy is an outrageous, irreverent character, a contradictory figure who is larger than life. Despite herself, her exaggerated stories reveal the past she desperately wants to hide. She may have been cast out of society, but she can never escape from herself.
