Ten years ago, the Screech was the hottest lesbian band around. But the mighty musicians have fallen into relative obscurity and unanticipated turmoil. Iris (Guinevere Turner) dreams of a comeback and drinks too much. MJ (V. S. Brodie) is her ex, but neither of them can quite let go. Former bandmate Lily (Lisa Gornick) and her partner, Carol (Cheryl Dunye), aren’t getting along—so, naturally, they’re trying to have a child together. A pool party goes horribly wrong, and a shocking event knocks these longtime friends and lovers even further off their axes. Generations collide with dangerous results for these Older, Wiser Lesbians, or OWLs.
