When her fiancé dies unexpectedly, Alice Kendall inherits half ownership of The Grotto, a struggling desert nightclub where she discovers eccentric performers and a heartbreaking secret. As Christmas approaches, Alice is on the brink of a leap of faith as forces both seen and unseen beckon her toward her future.


Starring the wonderful Betsy Brandt ("Breaking Bad") and written and directed by award-winning Joanna Gleason (“Into the Woods”), “THE GROTTO” is a magnificent feelgood romantic drama about loss, strength, love, and new beginnings.

Preceded by the music video “Honey”. See link below.
