Synopsis of That’s What She Told Me

Nashville meets Little Miss Sunshine in this short film about a NYC painter, Carly North, whose love affair with a wanna-be singing Cowboy and creative life have ground to a halt. After a visit from the Ghost of Johnny Cash, she is propelled on a surreal trip throughout the wilds of Upstate New York to find the father she has never met . . .That’s What She Told Me explores fantasy infringing on reality, and the struggle to decipher what is real and what isn’t. Using music, an American icon, and the lure of the road; this story speaks to anyone who has ever wondered where they really come from and whether we like it or not: the indelible mark of family on our lives.
