by Alexis Elisa Macedo
Granny hasn’t been visited by her red-hooded grandson in a while, and with Dementia being the only one keeping her company, she can’t remember how long it’s been or who he is when he waltzes through her door. In this contemporary twist on Little Red Riding Hood, what Wesley thought would be a simple trip to Granny’s house, turns into a battle against Dementia to remind her who he is…long enough to reveal the reason behind his spontaneous visit.
