Passion is reignited for a Sicilian seamstress whose love, grief, and anger know no bounds. After the death of her husband, Serafina retreats to the safe haven of memories. But when these memories are shattered by a horrible truth, the widow finds comfort in a truck driver whom she describes as having "my husband's body with the head of a clown." Living in a small immigrant town on the coast, Serafina struggles to come to terms with her own awakening desire, as well as that of her 15-year-old daughter, whom she can no longer shelter from the perils of love. Nicholas Martin directs The Rose Tattoo, by Tennessee Williams.
