Storyline

Two powerful, yet deeply troubled women - refugees from political and personal trauma - flee a past that haunts them. The daughter of a murdered Black Panther revolutionary, Tess, lives off the grid on a Sonoma vineyard, fiercely detached from all connections. Her hermetic life cracks when she gives reluctant shelter to a desperate young woman, Anna who has attempted suicide in a nearby forest. An unlikely alliance forms between the two, where other close relationships have failed - David, Anna's husband and John, Tess' employer, cannot break through their walls. But the very difference between the two women opens them up to a new vision of themselves, as not only survivors, but as heroes capable even of a thrilling shoot-out in the name of outlaw justice. Reclaiming freedom, and life, they plunge forward, towards an unknown, transformative horizon. Written by Jiilo_Kim

Thought Provoking and Insightful
8 July 2014 | by jorrdanbarrSee all my reviews

This movie does a lot in its short time span. For a independent movie like this to accomplish as much as it does is a feat in itself. The cinematography is beautiful, the acting is wonderful, and the screenplay is fantastic. There's a lot of complexities in the film that would require you to watch more than once to be able to take everything out of it. Overall, it was an enjoyable film. It's fair to say that Lily Rabe and LisaGay Hamiltons characters are the main driving force behind the film. Their constant repel/attract relationship keeps the momentum of the film going. If you're thinking of watching this movie, just do it, it might just have something special to say to you.
