SYNOPSIS: The Seven-Eleven at Pine and 17th in downtown St. Louis, Missouri has seen its share of shadiness, and now it's the perfect setting for a new take on the old tale of Rumpelstiltskin. When he agrees to help a mortgage-poor married couple make their house payment by spinning wheat into gold, he starts them on a cycle of dependency—until he demands their first child as payment. All this goes down in a dangerous neighborhood complete with incompetent criminals, corrupt police, meddling social workers, and smarmy salespeople. Bring your laughs and keep your wallet secure for a new “spin” on an old tale!
