The Pete

Two people get to know each other for the first time—two people who have few personal boundaries. They treat each other with a delightful immaturity, they role play to the most illogical extremes, and their openness to each other is intoxicating but vulnerable, exposed. Funny and unpredictable, they move in the spaces between understanding and misunderstanding, play and power, tenderness and conflict; they open up fully to each other while moving to their own rhythms.

The Pete

Laura Bush is an enigma wrapped in another enigma. She is shy, bookish, beautiful, and in 1963, she blew through a stop sign and killed a guy. It was probably just an accident. Perhaps it was simply youthful recklessness. Or maybe, just maybe… it was murder.
