Ten years ago, The Screech was the hottest lesbian band around. But the mighty musicians have fallen into obscurity and unanticipated turmoil. Iris dreams of a comeback and drinks too much. MJ is her ex, but neither of them can quite let go. Former bandmate Lily and her partner Carol aren’t getting along - so, naturally, they’re trying to have a child together.

When a pool party goes horribly wrong, a shocking event knocks these longtime friends and lovers even further out of orbit. Generations collide with dangerous results for these Older, Wiser Lesbians or “OWLs.” (From Frameline/SFILGBTFF)

A film by Cheryl Dunye (The Watermelon Woman) • Starring Cheryl Dunye, Lisa Gornick (Tick Tock Lullaby), Guinevere Turner (Go Fish, American Psycho), V.S. Brodie (Go Fish), and Deak Evgenikos (The Itty Bitty Titty Committee)
