After an academic injustice, Lena struggles to find purpose in her life. To make ends meet, she dances at a strip-club known to locals as "mecca." Her rebellious nature causes tension with her estranged father Harlen and her new female boss Romi. Sara is a young waitress who's an underwhelmed housewife and always lived by society's rules. Marrying her first love, Jarrod straight out of high school seemed like a good idea at the time, but the monotony of living paycheck to paycheck with nothing to show for it begins to create a divide between her and her blue-collared husband. One night, during a chance encounter, Lena helps Sara causing a fresh yet dangerous friendship to flourish as Sara is lured into a dark yet oddly compelling world. Written by lament

A surprisingly well-done independent film
16 May 2019 | by attila-698-252301See all my reviews

I have to admit my expectations were not all that high when I selected MM on Amazon Prime late one night. Boy, was I in for a surprise. The story involves the states of mind and relationships intertwined between two very different yet similarly conflicted women. One is an exotic dancer with much baggage, while the other is a housewife with disappointments and conflicts with her marriage. They two meet via a shared circle of friends and go on to have a brief tryst which changes both of their lives. The acting is professional and well done, and I give a particular nod to Tera Patrick who does a very credible job of playing the strip-club manager.
