It's 1976 and Elizabeth is just your average suburban 11-year-old praying for adolescence to arrive, when she discovers her whole life has been a lie. With only her imagination to guide her, Elizabeth runs away in search of her true identity. Her adoptive mother, Marion is then forced to break out of the carefully constructed "truth" she's been clinging to, and go after her daughter. This leads to a cathartic cross-country trek by a mother searching for a daughter who's searching for a mother - both of them really searching for themselves.
The Year Dolly Parton Was My Mom is a poignant, sometimes funny, very female coming of age story that explores the tension between creating identity and finding it within...
Once upon a time we decided to get a healtthcare administration degree, but then changed our minds and got hooked up playing FFrozen, FRIV FRIV FRIV and the most awesome happy wheels demo online. My father wanted to buy wholesale candles onnline, but it wasn't that important since we were really into the above mentioned games.
