Synopsis: JOLIE IS SOMEWHERE
Jolie is released from Rikers Island into a blizzard wearing the summer dress she was arrested in. She has $43, a dead cellphone, and nowhere to go. She didn’t commit a crime and she doesn’t know why she was released from jail without a trial. What she does know is that she’s lost her job, her apartment, her family, her friends, and her hope to ever be cast in another television commercial. While she was in jail, an inmate broke Jolie’s nose. It all happened to a naive girl from Oklahoma who feels really lost in that snowstorm.
It can’t get worse, really. But it can get better. Just when you think you are all alone in this world, you find out you’re not. There are people all around waiting for someone to accept their kindness and Jolie finds that out. At her worst moment, Jolie finds refuge and meets Madame Budska, aka Lina Sandor. a “psychic” who takes an interest in Jolie and what happens to her.
It doesn’t happen overnight. Jolie struggles with neurotic fears as well as thoughts of revenge, but eventually she finds a new life. One that she will live with her eyes open.
