Summaries

Summary Sentence: A reformed drug runner in an economically depressed small town must return to the way of life she left behind to help her sister.

Full Summary: Ollie (Tessa Thompson) is a reformed drug runner in an economically depressed small town in North Dakota, who was caught coming back from Canada with medicine for her terminally ill mother and has been toeing the line ever since. After her mother dies, Ollie’s sister Deb (Lily James) shows up on her doorstep with a hungry child and an unplanned pregnancy. Ollie can only see one viable option: quickly raise money to pay back the bank and hold onto their mother’s home, so Deb can raise her family safely away from her abusive ex. However, to do that, she’ll need to return to the dangerous way of life she thought she’d left behind. Writer/director Nia DaCosta won Tribeca Film Festival’s 2018 Nora Ephron Award for this emotionally charged small-town modern Western about two women in rural America. Their sister bond, beautifully exemplified by the authentic and lived-in relationship between Tessa Thompson’s Ollie and Lily James’ Deb, is what keeps them connected but can also tie them down.
