The Story
What happens when you’re looking for a suitable May Queen who is virginal, obedient, upstanding, AND moral but none of the teens in town match that description? You call on Albert. Yes, the grocer’s son, Albert Herring. As the newly crowned May King surely nothing bad will happen…

The ~Vibe~
Finding oneself, indie film comedy, breaking societal expectations
