Zip it up and tuck it into a drawer until your Laptop nags you to take your 'Passport' out and, yet again, update your Time Machine!

An excellent product!

The story, told in flashbacks that reflect Jasmine's fragmentation of her life, moves between a rather seedy San Francisco and an elegant New York. A story for our troubled economic times, it pays homage to Tennessee Williams' "Streetcar Named Desire",… Read more
