    Story: If you had a love-potion, who would you make fall madly in love with you? Timothy, prone to escaping his dismal high school reality through dazzling musical daydreams, gets to answer that question in a very real way. After his eccentric teacher casts him as Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream, he stumbles upon a recipe hidden within the script to create the play's magical, purple love-pansy. Armed with the pansy, Timothy's fading spirit soars as he puckishly imposes a new reality by turning much of his narrow-minded town gay, beginning with the rugby-jock of his dreams. Ensnaring family, friends and enemies in this chaos, Timothy forces them to walk a mile in his musical shoes. The course of true love never did run smooth; it's a bumpy ride.Written by Anonymous

    Synopsis: After his eccentric teacher casts him as Puck in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Timothy stumbles upon a recipe hidden within the script to create the plays magical, purple love-pansy.

    Armed with the pansy, Timothys fading spirit soars as he puckishly imposes a new reality by turning much of his narrow-minded town gay, beginning with the rugby-jock of his dreams. Ensnaring family, friends and enemies in this heart-wrenching chaos, Timothy forces them to live his kind of life for themselves. The course of true love never did run smooth, but by the end of the film (based on director Tom Gustafsons prolific short film Fairies) the bumpy ride comes to a conclusion. [D-Man2010]
