FEATURING

Ferris Wheel
by Mary Miller
Directed by Chris Powers

Synopsis

The unlikely love story of two lonely people who are forced to ride together on an old country ferris wheel. Dorrie only rides once a year, and she's scared to death every time. John hasn't been on one in since he was a kid, but his fears are tied up in an whole other set of neuroses, including that he's afraid to quit smoking. They are both afraid of each other. But now that they are now stuck in the same carriage, high above the fair grounds, their clashing peculiarities might be just what the other needed, at least for a moment.

From the Director:

Ferris Wheel peeks in on a ride gone wrong for two strangers. Or has it gone right?
