Synopsis: 

My Purple Wig tells the story of one woman's (often outrageous) attempts of dealing with her terminal cancer.  Evelyn has cancer and decided the best way to die is to be prepared to die, much to the chagrin of her family.  She auditions the musicians for her funeral, tours funeral homes for competitive rates, engages her family in conversations about her burial method and wears wigs in all colors of the rainbow.  As her methods get more erratic her family must decide whether to come together or fall apart.  My Purple Wig is about one family dealing with cancer and about a woman living with dying.
