A dilemma fuels the tension between the two women: while Tiahna seems comfortable being a player in the underground economy of Skid Row, Teri is driven by a powerful desire to get out. Together with other women from the neighborhood, they attend a weekly Expressive Arts workshop where they are looking to reflect, dream, and heal. Can their love survive the violence of their past and their current environment?

The film contains strong language, descriptions and scenes of abusive behavior.

The Cinematheque series is free and open to the public. The event will be held on Zoom. Guests are encouraged but not required to view the film before the event.
 
 
Occidental College students, faculty and staff are able to view the film with their library login here.

For non-Occidental audience members, the link will be made available to registered guests after 2/12
