Cast: 5m., 5w. (4m. with doubling, extras as desired.) Iowa farm girl Cathy Scruggs gets an assignment from her teacher to write a term project about Jeanne d'Arc. While working on her paper, the lonely, awkward teen suddenly finds the French farm maid has come to life and can speak to her. The two become fast friends and Jeanne introduces Cathy to a world of incredible courage and daring, as Jeanne sets about conquering marauding English invaders and crowning Prince Charles VII the king of France. But suddenly Cathy is called upon to do something heroic in her own time, as she discovers a nearby factory farm—her community's sole economic anchor for the past two decades—may be poisoning the water supply. As Jeanne's brave quest begins to crumble into tragedy, it becomes increasingly clear that Cathy must take a stand or turn her back on what she knows is right. Can a lone teenager face down a powerful corporation? Firsthand, Cathy learns about the nature of courage and what it really takes for one girl to change the world. Unit set. Approximate Running Time: 1 hour, 40 minutes.
