In June in a Box an old corrido comes to life, recounting the sensational 1934 kidnapping of June Robles, child of a wealthy immigrant family from Tucson. As an old woman, June relives the childhood events she survived but never escaped - helped by a pair of trickster coyotes, and the little girl inside her. This magical poem to innocence, to memory, and the force that heals life's scars features a jazz-inflected score, performed live.
