A humble tribute to our beloved tuxedoed companion Sweet Leaf, who lived a life of rags to riches...and everything in-between.
(PLEASE NOTE: This piece was originally conceived for the KCRW's 24 Hour Radio Race for their Independent Producers Project. The theme was "Where the sun don't shine." My race crashed and burned, but I did salvage this 10 minute rough cut of the story. The finished, polished piece, was to be cut down to 4 minutes to qualify.)
