THE WARM SEASON
FRI 2 JUNE
In 1967, 12-year-old Clive is playing in the New Mexican desert behind her family’s remote motel, when Mann suddenly appears claiming to be from a dying planet and searching for a new home for his kind. With the authorities closing in on him, Mann leaves a glowing orb with Clive, imploring her to conceal it and assuring her that he’ll return.
Fast-forward 25 years and Clive’s married, struggling to keep the now flailing motel afloat. Her husband, Mitch, urges Clive to sell the motel, restart their life and revive their love. As Clive ponders what she should do, Mann returns wanting his orb back. Problem is, Clive is not quite sure where it is.
