Ellen Zallinger Warner is sensible, cautious and introspective and has never wanted to be a has-been, over-the-hill, middle-aged divorcee. She has always wanted to be a respected, grieving widow....until her husband dies and leaves her a cabinet full of expensive photography equipment, a poorly conceived film production company, a contract to produce background film for a Burbank television studio and no life insurance. Since she is desperate and alone and has nothing more to lose, she decides to fulfill her husband's contract to film the wild, wide-open spaces of New Mexico.
Ellen learns about photography and drugs and cock-fighting in New Mexico. She also learns that she can recover her identity.
Is there an antagonist anywhere in the picture?
