PIGASUS PICTURES FILMS AS PART OF 2019 HEARTLAND INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL THIS OCTOBER:
- Ms. White Light

Summary: Ms. White Light is the story of Lex Cordova (Roberta Colindrez), a young woman who counsels terminally ill clients that have trouble letting go. While proving uniquely talented in her ability to connect with the dying, Lex is a total loss when it comes to dealing with everyone else. When Valerie (Judith Light), a sharp-tongued free spirit who simply has no time for her own mortality, refuses to play by Lex’s rules, Lex is forced to question her own decisions, and must decide if the business of dying is truly worth it…even at the cost of living her life. Ms. White Light is the second feature-length film by Pigasus Pictures, and has received wide acclaim after premiering at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.
