A vérité documentary without talking heads or narration, this unconventional valentine spans five decades of shared pain and laughter —and a lifetime of hard-earned wisdom. Set deep in working class Jewish Brooklyn — the film follows two very funny, if rather traditional housewives. First, like so many young women in the 1950’s, they got married. Then, like so many young women in the 1970s, they got divorced. Unlike most, however, they both left their husbands for another woman: each other. They had fallen madly and passionately in love. For Connie, it was liberating. For Ruth, it was wrenching. And for the community that loved them so much, it was the scandal of the century. The journey that followed left them changed forever.
