Written by Pamela Parker
Directed by Diana Marshall-Shoaf
Visit the small town of Second Samuel. Change isn’t something the residents of the tight-knit community Second Samuel openly embrace. In fact, it’s one of those places where everything is as it’s always been, and that’s just fine with everyone. But after the summer of Miss Gertrude’s death, sometime in the late 1940s, nothing will be the same again in their small town. A touching story of acceptance and community, experience a change of heart with the residents of Second Samuel.
