Colleen has arranged a friendly meeting with her long-estranged sister, Eleanor. But as their conversation goes on, old hurts and frustrations burst to the fore. As both sisters commit to finishing the conversation, the film offers an intimate portrait of a rocky reconciliation.

Director's Bio:

Dani Wieder is a director of theater and film based in Chicago.
