Jane Two is about that magical moment in each of our lives when we are neither too young to reason, nor too old to dream. A young Mickey navigates through the dense Texas humidity of the 70s and out onto the porch every single time his Grandaddy calls him, where he’s presented with the heirloom recipe for life, love, and manhood. But all the logic and insight in the world cannot prepare him to operate correctly in the presence of a wonderfully beautiful girl who moves in just behind his rear fence. This magical moment divides Mickey’s life into a “before and after” and permanently changes his motion down the unpaved road to which only a lucky few are granted access.
