"A candid slice of urban lesbian life in the 90s." —Sheila Reid, Women in the Life

"A lurching-toward-love story for anyone who's ever felt a romantic stirring."—Frank Bruni, Detroit Free Press

"A sweet romantic fantasy, totally dreamed up by lesbians."—Rene Jordan, El Nuevo Herald Miami

After breaking up with her girlfriend to attend college in Chicago, young lesbian Max West (Guinevere Turner) is introduced to Ely (V.S. Brodie), a slightly older woman who at first seems too quirky for her personal tastes. While Max and Ely quickly develop an attraction to each other, a poorly timed phone call from Ely's long-distance girlfriend, Kate, brings things to an abrupt halt. However, the close-knit nature of their lesbian community ensures that they won’t be separated for long.
