Overview

Sexy, beautiful, frustrated... a neglected housewife finds the delights and degradations of forbidden love.

Frances, a 1950s housewife, becomes bored with her suburban life and enrolls in a class at the local community college. When she meets Blake, a butch lesbian, her life completely changes. In thrall to a forbidden world of martini lunches, late nights at queer bars, and a sexual passion she never knew was possible, Frances must choose between the safety of heterosexual marriage or the dangers of life on the edge of society.
