THE STORY: An idiosyncratic look at the way love can remake our lives in the most surprising ways, THE CHEMISTRY OF CHANGE is the story of a dysfunctional family who must learn to function when the matriarch, Lee, falls unexpectedly and deeply in love with Smokey, the owner of a carnival attraction called the Hell Hole. Curiously, Smokey appears to be somewhat less than human, with horns and claws instead of hands, which Lee can’t help but find charming. After they elope, Lee brings Smokey back to the house and her nonplussed children, setting the stage for a showdown of devilish proportions that, ultimately, reveals love as the element of chemistry that makes change possible.
