WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In the year 2014, a young "ethno-femino-dance anthropologist" travels to post-quake, post-drought Los Angeles to research her 10,000 page dissertation on "The History of the World, as Told by Loose Women." Her final subject: the half-mad, 108 year-old legendary stripper Desmond "Nani" Reese, who is holed up in a bramble-covered shack with 27 cats.  Woodbury channels the voices of these two unlikely heroines, illuminating the lives of outlaw women through the ages.
