Nurse on the Run is an original story written and conceived by Willow as part of See The Elephant’s Traveling Tales program. Traveling Tales brings storytelling, puppetry, & film to youth in the El Dorado County region.

SYNOPSIS: Yoko is a nurse with unusual healing powers and great ambition. When her boss, Mr. Karen fires her from her job at the hospital, Yoko is lost – until she meets an assuming new friend.

BACKGROUND: In 2022, See The Elephant partnered with the local Boys & Girls Club to facilitate story-writing workshops for youth. In these workshops, participants wrote original stories, in the genre of folktale / fairy tale. They created story arcs, concept art, and storyboards. Traveling Tales project artists then made these stories into short films using handcrafted puppets.
