IN PRODUCTION

HOLLY STAR is a warm blue-collar comedy about a struggling puppeteer, who gets fired from her dream job and returns to her hometown in Maine for the holidays. While she’s trying to figure out how to make a living doing her art or whether to just scrap it all, she has a near-death experience which uncovers long, lost memories and propels her into a preposterous treasure hunt for money, meaning and maybe love. Michael A. Nickles directs from his original script. Production Begins December 2016.
