     AMELIA 1868

Rose, a free-spirited young woman, leaves her fiancee at the altar of their country

church in Walnut, Iowa. Driven by forces beyond her control, she flees to the old

western ghost town of Virtinia City, Montana, where she feels oddly at home...

Drawn to an old cemetery in the mountains, she discovers a weathered tombstone

and begins to sob uncontrollably. Only two words are etched upon the stone -

AMELIA 1868.

Obsessed with uncovering the identity of this long-forgotten woman, Rose finds

herself transported back and forth in time between the life of a hurdy-gurdy dance

hall girl struggling to survive in the 1860s and her own sheltered life in 2011.

Her strange and intriguing journey becomes more complicated when a love interest

materializes and throws her off balance. Her life becomes a bizarre dance twisting

and turning between the past and the present.

Can she find a way to move into the future?
