ACROSS A LITTLE RED MARKER
In 1988, a U.S. Border Inspector and Vietnam War widow in Washington State meets a mysterious insurance agent and finds her life tangled in this “Coen Brothers-meets-Chekhov” comically dark crime drama.
The year is 1988, when George H.W. Bush will be elected President, the Edmonton Oilers will trade Wayne Gretzky to the Los Angeles Kings and the enacting of a new trade agreement waits, which will change things for the U.S.-Canada border. Nadine works as a U.S. Border Inspector, serving and protecting her Port of Entry with an authoritative, no-nonsense style. However, a health scare causes the single mother and Vietnam widow to pursue a life insurance policy. When she meets Mr. Hayden, a duplicitous
insurance agent with a dark and hidden agenda, Nadine soon finds her life and the world around her spiraling out of control.
