Kimberly-Kay doesn't believe in make-believe -- she's a no nonsense kid, too grown up to listen to fairy tales, too sophisticated to have a happy childhood. When her mother comes to tuck her in and tell her a bedtime story, Kimberly-Kay scoffs, turns over, and goes to sleep. That's when the Wind of a Thousand Tales (played by an ensemble of 8 to 34 or more actors) decides it's time to blow in and take charge.
Breezes take her to Mexico for a tale about Carlos, a handsome young man who has eyes for beautiful young women only, and Corazòn, who loves him but realizes she is far too unattractive to ever win his love. A little secret: Corazòn does win his love, but you'll have to read or see Wind of a Thousand Tales to find out how. The Breezes also show Kimberly-Kay a happy/sad Japanese folktale and a funny story that takes place in Central Europe. By the time she has heard the three tales, Kimberly-Kay understands a deeper sense of truth than she had found in a world without make-believe.
