The Story

Reflections of a UnicornThe UNICORN is 1000 years old - time for him to die. He has to cross Los Angeles to one, last mountain - but he no longer has the strength to remain invisible.

And he is seen by KARUS (Soon-Tek Oh), a homeless man with a forgotten past that his friend, Doa Sylvia, says "is too terrible to remember."  Karus accepts the charity of Doa Sylvia and her niece, ANNUNCIATA (Lorina Zapata), as he searches the city for what may or may not be a dream of his imagination.The Dreambreaker and Annunciata

Annunciata has her own problems:  the ghetto-born teenager is no match for the Immigration officer known as 'THE DREAMBREAKER" (Dan Riordan):  she is legal, but cannot produce immediate proof.  The Dreambreaker wants to make a media example of Annunciata and her LOW RIDER cousins he plans to arrest the girl and ship her down to Mexico the next morning.

Within hours it is a 3-way search:  Karus and Annunciata look for the Unicorn, the Low Riders search for the missing girl and the Dreambreaker sets up a police dragnet after them all.

But Karus does not see the Unicorn anymore they have not reached the Last Mountain where the Unicorn must die.  Years of homeless alcoholism bring doubt creeping into his heart.  He finds himself following the girl who he had intended to lead. Her newfound belief is their only guide.

such as Karus, for the Last Mountain. Separating from the Unicorn, Annunciata goes down to the town where Karus is held prisoner, finds her Low Rider
cousins, and creates an escape plan.
