When Roscoe, a retired Cervantes scholar, runs off with a young woman named Sally, he decides to stay a while in her family home in Southern CA. Soon he discovers her house is filled with secrets, sadness, and haunted women who cannot leave themselves or anyone else in peace. From Lucy, Sally’s suspicious sister, to Mable, their Shakespeare quoting invalid mother, to Elizabeth, Mable’s lovely and mysteriously mute nurse, the forces of the house conspire to make Roscoe question his assumptions about everything. Scars and histories are revealed and show what happens when the secrets simmering within a family boil over. Heartless explores the irrevocability of our past, and the possibility of life begun anew.
