It did well on the festival circuit. Now, Fleming and Michaud are back in Minnesota, where she grew up, showing the film and talking about their experiences making it.

There is a lot to talk about: Michaud produced the film, while Fleming wrote, directed and played the lead. They also plan to be married.

Fleming and Michaud told Minnesota Public Radio's Euan Kerr the idea began with certain people he'd met over the years.
