"A traditional stop motion animation shot as thousands of still photos, this is a tale of love and drama… Set in western New Mexico in the late 19th century, a “Day of the Dead” ball is held at the stately Villa Meredith-Ailman. Many souls attend the festivities and old flames are fanned and new fires are started as guests pair off for private liaisons. Secrets are revealed and conflicts arise that can only end with a Duel in the Desert." - Stephen Dirkes.
