A Ren Faire Romance
With nothing to lose after getting booted from the Dallas Symphony, concert flutist Adrian Mylonas follows a friend’s recommendation to take work as a satyr at Scarborough Renaissance Festival. While playing his pipes, Adrian spots a man unloading elephants. Ed Costa has lived his whole life running elephant rides at various festivals around Texas. He inherited the job from his father, and is teaching the family trade to his five-year-old son Eddy, who is the center of Ed’s life. He likes the life he leads, but he begins wondering if he’s missing out because he doesn’t have someone special to share it with.
The songs of the elephants and the colorful life of the faire capture Adrian’s imagination, and as he gets to know Ed, the rugged man sets his heart free. He begins to think he could leave his careful and sophisticated life behind for new music, new habits, and new love.
