When Frankie’s dad dies, her mom, Ava, can’t afford to live in the city anymore. The only asset they’re left with is a farmhouse situated on twenty acres of land far outside of town. Ava decides to move there and start an Ayurveda clinic on the property, giving her precocious and grieving daughter a new start. One problem presents itself, though: a squatter who won’t leave.

Will, professional photographer, long-estranged brother-in-law to Ava, and uncle to Frankie, lives rent-free on the farm and isn’t eager to give up his space. While mother and daughter face the challenges of starting over and grieving, they also need to figure out how to weave a new man into the picture. Soon, though, Frankie finds in Will someone to look up to and trust during her time of emotional upheaval, and Ava discovers a companion who pushes her to grow and helps her to discover her potential. In their journey the group thread together a new understanding of family, and a tender love story unfolds.

In a Blue Moon combines dance, recollection, photography, and heartfelt emotion to examine three characters who each grieve very differently. Love, compassion, and companionship are discovered and shared as each member of the trio finds peace in their new reality, in their own way.


"With strong writing and characters, In a Blue Moon is a complex, authentic story about three people learning how to live with each other after such a profound loss."
– Tessa Perkins, The Peak

"Poignant and touching, heartfelt and hilarious."
