When budding country songwriter Emerson Crumpet Larue discovers the map to a long-lost treasure he thinks his prayers are answered. But Emerson is a man struggling under the weight of a woeful destiny, and getting his hands on that treasure may be a lot harder than just following the map. Sasparilla is the one-act story of a modern-day cowboy torn between the call of adventure and the demands of family.
