MISTAH is a visceral and visual tale of a young man from Coney Island who falls in love with a black, Creole woman from New Orleans. Each is on a journey from their dysfunctional upbringings on the road to self-discovery. It encompasses the turbulence and coming of age in the 1960’s, the belief in love and ideals, and the slow, hard won knowledge that life has a price for all of us.
