Red Milk Canyon Synopsis
Residents in a cozy canyon in the San Fernando Valley begin dying from a mysterious poison that may or may not relate to the history of the two and its proximity to Spahn Ranch. The remaining people don’t want their hamlet to turn into a ghost town, and they fiercely hold on to a new way of living, some through promiscuity, others in various states of disease, or with new characteristics. Newcomers are welcome, especially if they practice tolerance with the odd and strange. The residents of Red Milk Canyon learn that home is something that you can always reinvent.
