For as long as they can remember, Carrie and Hannah (Rachel Sennott “Shiva Baby”), they were always inseparable. When their former mate from Hebrew school, Samatha Goldstein, commits suicide, the girls attend the funeral and a meeting that is supposed to help them understand the mourning through a prism of faith. However, after an innocent kissing practice turns Carrie’s world upside down, teenage passions, social status differences and shaky faith start to complicate the friends’ lives.
A queer, coming-of-age drama set in Rochester, NY.
