JULIE FROM OHIO is a reconstructed journey recorded in dreams and impressions in Julie's notebook. Julie lives in New York and works as a call-girl, waitress, yoga teacher, and model. In an effort to gain objectivitym she leaves New York to visit relatives in the Abruzzi region of Italy. Her sense of time becomes blurred as she visits cemeteries and museums and looks at old family photos. She finds her strongest sense of certainty in the symbols of the Tarot, whose constancy among the anachronisms around her remains unchanged. As she recalls her life in New York, she gradually begins to understand her shifting sense of values and, shortly before she leaves Italy, she finds and abandoned tower in whose scribbled-on walls she seems to recognize symbols of her past and of what her future might become. --I. H. R.
