Ten years ago, The Screech was the hottest lesbian band around. But the mighty musicians have fallen into relative obscurity and unanticipated turmoil. Iris (Guinevere Turner) dreams of a comeback and drinks too much. MJ (VS Brodie) is her ex, but neither of them can quite let go. Former bandmate Lily (Lisa Gornick) and her partner Carol (Cheryl Dunye) aren't getting along - so, naturally, they're trying to have a child together. A pool party goes horribly wrong, as a shocking event knocks these longtime friends and lovers even further out of orbit. Generations collide with dangerous results for these Older, Wiser Lesbians or "OWLs." Using a unique blend of narrative and documentary, the group behind the production may be just as revolutionary as the format: a collective banded together to explore a dynamic filmmaking process by creating a landmark lesbian film in just three weeks.
