“[This] young girl, played by Dianna, comes from Nevada and she meets this older woman, played by Paz, an enigmatic figure and they have a relationship that’s like two souls connecting,” Natalia said. “They don’t really figure it out at first, I think. But it’s more like they’re drawn to each other and Paz, the Pepper character, convinces her to get a job at a truck stop strip club and it gets wild from there.”
As Pepper, Paz is a strong influence on Dianna’s character, Sarah, which leads to a lot of discovery.
“I think a lot of it is about someone carving out their own path in life instead of accepting what’s predetermined for them,” Natalia said. “We have control over our future, in a way. We might have been born into this family or social class or economical situation—whatever it is, living in this town is very much going by the book, and she finds a possibility for another life in a world she never thought was an option for her. And just kind of taking a chance and making some choices, being proactive despite of the fact it’s the right or the wrong thing to do. It’s not like black and white. She’s figuring out what her own path is.”
