Both struggle with truths they're hiding from each other - and from themselves.

And she's almost ready to commit to her longtime fiancé when her sister Lucy - the personification of all that Jenny has been trying to flee - surprises her at a critical time.

i like the of " masks " we all need sometime to wear masks even with our very close circle, but i didn't get what the director feel about this idea,is it good or evil if we people sometimes obligate to hide things !!!??? ( i mean moral). we see to brothers go in opposite directions ,another time i am confused about what we are watching !!! are talking about man-woman point's of view ??? is it all about masks or pretending ??? there is a lot of surprises but a very little information about characters past - i mean in a way makes the critic feel free to analyze things in certain moments ... anyway, i feel like Nancy Savoca has to work more over details , because small details make the differences .
