Two friends, Bernice and Fontayne, were so close while growing up they ‘go for sisters’, but then lose track of each other for twenty years. They are reunited when Bernice is assigned as the parole officer for Fontayne, who is fresh out of prison and fighting heroin addiction — but Bernice has an even more threatening problem. With a small budget this is a return to the guerilla style of filmmaking familiar to John Sayles from his early 1980s films Return of the Secaucus Seven, Lianna and Brother from Another Planet.
