Dessyre (des-i-ray): inspired by actual events

Alvey is an obscure singer/songwriter eking out a living as a soloist in eastern Kansas.  After a late gig on an exceptionally warm Thursday evening in June, he offers a stranded woman a ride to the edge of town.  Then everything goes awry.


The passenger is an alien.


From Canada.


Marissa grew up in Kansas City.  She went to high school in Kansas City, was the editor of the school newspaper, and dated the quarterback.

Then she served in the Marines.


When she is 35 and homeless, she is caught buying some marijuana from an undercover deputy.

For that, she is banished from the United States.


To Canada.


Then who exactly is Dessyre?
