Sienna's Mantram, or (a change of pace at China Lake)

Guests check into a meditational B&B for an escape; from their jobs, from their deteriorating relationships...from ominous lights following them through the desert? Between a dead guest, a big-budget Hollywood remake, and the mysterious history of its location, the B&B will start to show its teeth. Can the guests keep their chakra's centered, or will they be swallowed whole? Written by Zach Stephens, Directed by Kelly Webb from New York, NY
