Enigmatic and regal, decadent and mystical, direct descendant of Merlin the Great Druid, the present carrier of the Pure and Magical bloodline, First Horn, a.k.a Jason, has come to New Orleans for the time of the Great Coupling. His partner is to be the witch who can cast the most powerful spell, and as the magical night draws nearer, the witches confer and prepare. New Orleans's benevolent prostitute and practicing sex-healer, Lucinda Bale is also on a mission--to find a spell that will annul the restraining order that is preventing her from seeing her only son. As the stories of our two heroes intertwine, the temperature heats up in the dark and sultry city of New Orleans. It seems that sex might just be magic, after all. Taking the equations of gender politics to their natural conclusion, writer/director/actor Jon Jacobs brews a potent mix of visual sauciness and jagged edginess. And yes, Merlin speaks Scottish. --Marlene Friis
