Set against the colorful and complicated neighborhood of Venice, Ghost Town is the love story between a woman and her house. When Zelda is offered big bucks for her charming Bungalow, she’ll have to decide – should she stay or should she go? Visited by the ghosts of Venice past, present, and future, Zelda learns of the vibrant history of her community – the visions of Abbot Kinney, the dreams of migrant families, and the inspiration for generations of artists and creatives. But she also learns that not everyone is as they seem and the future may be dark for her beloved home. Full of music and revelry, Ghost Town serves up a story of home, community, and change that is both raucous and real.
