The screenplay for the film draws on the same themes and inspirations as the album. The story revolves around a fortuneteller named Zel (played by respected cult actress Angela Bettis) who lives and works in an old house crowded with ghosts. When a mysterious light appears in the woods, the ghosts realize they are trapped and begin to rebel. The live soundtrack to the film has been a part of Califone performances throughout the fall touring in support of All My Friends Are Funeral Singers.
Even with all of the excitement surrounding the film, the band are spending the bulk of their February on tour, supporting Wilco on dates in the United States and Canada. These shows will not accompany the film, and include an appearance at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Additionally, Califone has announced two shows in their hometown of Chicago, one alongside the film on March 9, and one as a standard rock show on March 10.
