Synopsis

"Zworl Quern" was a stage name for Janet Wolfe, whose brief but bizarre acting career including being sawed in half by Orson Wells. In Deborah Matlovsky's offbeat and refreshingly candid portrait, everyone in Janet's life — including Eartha Kitt, Shelley Winters and her ex-husband — has a story to tell about this irrepressible woman who has fearlessly traveled the world in search of love, art and adventure.
