This philandering father told Marta that she should never show herself on a public stage. Leaving this awful family behind, Marta decided to buy the ghost town of Amargosa Valley, with its abandoned hotel and social hall. She and her husband personally rebuilt the hall into a theater by hand, and restored the hotel rooms.
