A flamenco "hip-hopera" built from legends of Gypsy folklore, Greek myth, Celtic fables and ancient champions.

She, the hero of mythical origin with flamenco powers, is pursued by the immortal Phoenix and his hip-hop oracular.  Chased from the Void into human lands, taken in by a Gypsy woman and her wolves, tricked by the King of Dreams, and sent into the Three Arches of trial, she is transformed from Creation to the Hunted to the Victorious One, but not before her Fated death is embraced. Written and directed by Camelia R. Finley and co-written by Jacob Cornelius.
