Reality seems to be slipping away for Dottie, who goes about her day overwhelmed by a flood of memories. But soon her traumatized reflections start to sound eerily familiar: a tornado... a scarecrow... a dumb dog... 

Is she who she seems to be? What was real, and what was on the silver screen? And is there a difference?

(From Lost in Place: 5 Short Plays by Lewis Black.)
