Friends play matchmaker, trying to bring two polar opposites into the mix, and ultimately succeed. After a lot of persuasion and strong resistance, during which the audience is exposed to some heady discourses on herstory, queer theory and lesbian peer pressure, the unlikely singles finally come together and the union seems made in heaven. This is a narrative feature that attempts to deal with heavy issues in a light comedic manner. Lesbian life is revealed in a way not hitherto seen in Nuyorican or American cinema. The film is visually highly-textured with an inventive symbology. Watch for the Boricua family scene.
