'A deeply affecting love story' - Indiewire

Melbourne Premiere

Out baby butch Joey (Lola Kirke, Mistress America) considers the Army as a way out of rural Pennsylvania until a chance encounter with the older and charismatic Rayna (Breeda Wool, UnReal), married mother of two. With undeniable attraction, they immediately begin a passionate affair, hidden from Rayna's long-haul trucker husband.

Much to her family's dismay, Joey's resolve to escape her small town life begins to falter as she dreams of a future with Rayna. Deb Shoval's feature debut is a tender exploration of the intensity of first love constrained by rural poverty.
