Stirring every day magic, wisdom and wonder into a tale of discovery, Becoming Jesse tells the story of a six-year-old orphaned boy of comic charm, simplicity, and soul-lighting wisdom.
Jesse O’Neil lives in 1950s New York City with his beloved grandmother – Dearie – a once-upon-a-time Irish gypsy, who runs her own theater; and his young uncle Conor, who is studying to be an actor.
Filled with shenanigans, drama and mystery, Jesse’s young life swirls through a melting pot of apartment characters: an enchanting old storyteller, a jolly Tugboat captain, a spiteful old lady, playful children, and an unsavory character, who smells of trouble.
Theater, music, classic literature and gypsy storytelling play their parts to the hilt, as Jesse’s quest finds the true meaning of blessings, fulfillment, and the magic of our inner light.
Your Magic is waiting for you. Light ON!
