By E.M. Lewis
Director: Micki Selvitella
Videographer/Filmmaker: Ian Anderson-Priddy
Sparks fly when Zan (Benicio Delgado), an angry high school student, is forced to work off his community service assignment by helping Dorothy (Lori Van Dreal), an ailing librarian. But each of them might just have what the other needs if they can only find the words. Dorothy’s Dictionary is about how good books, careful listening, true friendship and kindness can help you chart your course in life, even when you are really, really lost.
