Mighty Fine – written and directed by Debbie Goodstein
Set in the 1970’s, Mighty Fine is the story of Joe Fine a charismatic, high-spirited man, who relocates his family—wife Stella , daughters Natalie and Maddie —from Brooklyn to New Orleans, in search of a better life.  Joe’s devotion to his family knows no bounds, and he seeks to provide them with the ultimate in the good life, from a palatial home to a steady string of extravagant gifts.  Unfortunately, Joe’s spending spree is wildly out of touch with reality, as his apparel business is teetering on the brink of collapse, a fact he refuses to accept.  (from the press materials)
