In Magic Fruit, Tami, an ex-gang member, sets out on a journey through an apocalyptic Los Angeles where the heat is rising, but not as fast as property values. In spite of the many challenges she faces, including her own hunger, addiction, financial insecurity and a system she doesn’t really understand, she finds unexpected allies in strange places, as she aims to reunite her family, find a home, and maybe, just maybe, save the world.

A completely made-up alternative reality of displacement and methane leaks, an implausible, extremely far-flung future of mega droughts and flaming hot Cheetos that could never, ever happen, not in a million years, because that would be insane. And we’re not insane, are we?
