That is why I like indie cinema

This continues with a recent trend in cinema in dealing with a rather contemporary phenomenon that of same sex couples and the challenges they face. The heroine in this story is trapped by her partner who is driven, successful provides a nice home for both to live but totally neglects her as well as her needs. Everything is about the alpha female spouse. But there's two in a marriage right?

As part of an effort of self exploration as well as increasing unfulfilled sexual needs she rents an apartment down town and makes it something of a lesbian brothel which causes something of a transformation in her in the sense that from feeling inadequate and incomplete, suddenly she is filled with capacity to give pleasure to those who come her way.

Such as is the nature of experiments like this, as the story progresses it leads to one big question: how long can/will she carry on leading a double life?

Captivating and poignant, it is another gem of indie cinema.
