Helen has been living a mostly joyless life, stuck living in a house with the ex-husband she hates while caring for his ailing mother, whom she adores. But she has a gaggle of gal pals at the chicken processing plant where she works, so that’s something. One day, her humdrum daily routine takes a surprisingly interesting and possibly romantic turn when her charismatic childhood friend Joanne returns home to live next door. This delightful, quirky, yet moving tale of empowerment and liberation is the lesbian musical rom-com you never knew you needed to see. Opening shorts: Get Free & Once and Again.
