Synopsis: From the only home she’s ever known from which she never leaves, “SHE” has written 1,212 letters to no one in particular and ”HE” is her only response. “The Extraordinary Tale” is a darkly comic satire where reality and fantasy meet and two whimsical, emotionally damaged misfits fall in love during a pen-pal courtship. Fun-loving and innocent to the world but fragile and damaged by the past, they dive into sex, love, marriage and baby and when reality crashes into fantasy, things go terribly wrong.
