Told with heart and humor, DRAGONFLY explores the complicated relationship between a struggling artist and her family as they work to reconcile their turbulent past in order to make the most of their present.
When her mom is diagnosed with early on-set Alzheimer’s, struggling artist Anna Larsen returns home to help but brings years of family baggage with her. As she unpacks her past, Anna rediscovers a mysterious mailbox from her childhood and embarks on a search to solve its mystery. What she learns along the way might just be the key to rekindling her own magic.
