After the death of a family matriarch, the ghostwriter of her memoirs aims to protect the unexpected story she left behind. Meanwhile, a street performer in search of an audience tinkers with a new song on the other side of the city.

Director’s Statement: Jordan Axelrod

The cast of characters is built up of (or based on) folks from my world in New York, some playing versions of themselves and others entirely fictional, resulting in an ensemble of experienced actors and first-timers. About Frances examines the act of storytelling in the face of a slippery truth, an unheard song, and the extent to which one can directly shape their own legacy.
