Winner of Most Popular Canadian Film Award at the Vancouver International Film Festival!

Three young women—an insecure (but in-demand) actress, a musician on the brink of self-destruction, and an impressively talented, yet inexperienced artist—all have the makings of stardom; all equally dependent on their wise and compassionate neighbor Pearl. When Pearl unexpectedly leaves their lives, the three women are forced to make much needed changes to live independently and find their courage without the safety net of Pearl. Can they reach the other side of success or will they fall from grace? Featuring a superb ensemble cast of Gabrielle Miller (Sisters & Brothers), Jennifer Spence (Continuum), Colleen Rennison (Poltergeist: The Legacy), and Helen Shaver (Desert Hearts), Ben Ratner’s touching film comes to life with a raw fervor.
