One-time college pals Veronica (Sandra Oh) and Ashley (Anne Heche) run into each other at a party. The women, now in their forties and having not seen each other since school, find that their lives have taken radically different paths. Ashley is barely scraping by as a painter of politically charged canvases, while Veronica is married to a wealthy businessman who's about to profit hugely off yet another US-led war in the Middle East.
Within minutes of their reunion, a rivalry is revived, old wounds are torn open, and a Manhattan stairwell becomes home to a woman-on-woman brawl the likes of which are seldom seen outside of martial-arts epics. And now the gloves are off. The new feature from writer-director Onur Tukel takes a set-up that in most films would lead to a heartwarming story of female friendship— and uses it instead as the springboard for an outrageously madcap black comedy.
"If Woody Allen began adding 'Raging Bull' episodes to his slices of upper-class urban absurdity, it would play like this." - Star Tribune
"It has a certain outlandish purity of purpose which Heche and Oh follow through on with demonic intensity" - Variety
"Our expectations are forced into conjuring hope for a wild, frenzied ride. Onur Tukel doesn't disappoint with this broad satire of American politics and wealth disparity." The Film Stage
