A Scratch for Every Itch


  A feted film director's obsession with a blood sucking parasite leads to her demise

When a celebrated film director--known as "M"--began her groundbreaking production, she did not foresee the unintended consequences of her project. M's action-packed film chronicled two women trailblazers in the detection and extermination business on their mission to eradicate a global pest from the face of the earth. But, nature can be cruel. M's film never saw the light of day. A tiny blood sucking parasite led to the demise of the feted director. What it triggered in the mind of her nosey "Citizen Kane" neighbor, and by extension in our lives, is epic.
