Susannah's Lesson

Based on Stephen King characters from the Dark Tower series, this short examines the student-teacher dynamic between the legendary Gunslinger and the woman in the wheelchair he pulled into his world a few months before our story begins.

Fans of the book series will appreciate the delivery by Sara Gabriella and Jacob Gallegos, and those not familiar will enjoy the short for the adapted dialogue between the wise-ass student and the cool, collected teacher.
