Split Ticket uses as its springboard an historical incident. In April of 1947, three months after being sworn in as new congressmen, John F. Kennedy, age 29, and Richard M. Nixon, age 34, traveled to McKeesport, Pennsylvania, where they debated before a civic group, went to a diner for hamburgers, then shared a sleeping compartment on the Capitol Limited overnight train leaving at midnight for Washington. That is the jumping-off point for a Twilight Zone-ish story about two American icons and future presidents who make a fateful decision.

The tape, translated from Ghesmashkikcili tells of the bravery and wit of my great-grandmother. She had to strike an unusual bargain with dark forces to win her freedom. While the tiny country of Ghesmashkik is completely forgotten today, I knew I had to preserve her story. Using photos from the family archives, This film honors the spirit and irreverence of a woman I never met, but an proud to be descended from.

Welcome to a modern world where magic is so prevalent that it’s almost mind numbingly monotonous. After a hundred years of peace and prosperity, society has grown comfortable, tolerating the occasional dragon attack as long as it doesn’t interfere with internet speed. With very few exceptions, Questers (professional adventurers) are seen as desperate lunatics that must journey for days, sometimes months, to complete increasingly dangerous jobs. Ninety-nine percent of all quests end in either failure or death.
