Jeff takes Mary on a vacation that she's reluctant to go on. They stay in an oddly decorated rustic cabin with no modern amenities. The strange wall hangings, antiques, and minimalist living accommodations aren't the strangest things they have to deal with. Jeff and Mary suffer memory loss and torment after Sarah's trick or treat encounter. Unable to get rid of her, Jeff and Mary try to figure out what's going on through clues left by Sarah.


"Where is She?" is an original script by Jerry Wood.  The first of his attempts to produce and direct a script that he has written and built a set for.  You can follow along with the build process, through Live videos, pictures, and posts on the Zen and Chaos Studios Facebook page.
