Karyn Dwyer hasn't had a relationship for quite a long time but when she meets Christina Cox, an artist who paints and sells portraits outside her trailer, she helplessly falls in love with her. Cox moves in with Dwyer and everything seems just wonderful but Dwyer's brother and her mother will soon come and stay with her for a while. The problem is that Dwyer hasn't told her mother that she's gay.

Karyn Dywer & Christina Cox


Dwyer and Cox's first attempt to show affection for each other is at a Café but just when they're about to kiss each other, the owner interupts them and says that they can't do this inside his Café. It wouldn't look good..

Their second attempt is in Cox's trailer. They begin to kiss each other and just when things are starting to heat up, the trailer starts to move. It has been wrongly parked and is therefore being tolled away.

They can finally find some privacy in the appartment which Dwyer temporarily lives in. They first kiss each other after which they paint each other with some of Cox's paint-brushes.

This scene shows them kissing in a shower. This is probably just after the paint-session.

Dwyer's brother and mother is now staying at the borrowed appartment with Dwyer and Cox (who ofcourse is said to be just a friend of Dwyer). One evening, Dwyer's brother hear some peculiar sounds from Dwyer and Cox's room. He looks into the room and sees the two of them making love.

Dwyer and Cox are at a gay-club dancing. They go to the ladies room and into a booth and look the door behind them. Dwyer says that it's hard to have sex when your mother is in the other room. They start kissing each other heavily and Dwyer pulls up Cox's sweater and licks her breasts. She continue down Cox's stomach and starts to pull down her pants.
Cox moans quite heavily now and the people outside hear her and they smile when they realise what is going on. Dwyer continues to pleasure her and you can see Cox's face-expression becoming more and more excited. Afterwards they kiss each other and Cox laughes at the rather funny situation. They walk out of the booth where the people smile at them. They both look very "guilty".

At the same club, you can then see Cox giving Dwyer a Rose and later on kissing each other
on the dance-floor.

The last kiss in the movie is on a street after they've reunited.

This is a wonderful movie and the two girls match so perfectly in my oppinion. I can really recommend that you take a look at this one because there are few other movies that have this very nice mix of a beautiful love story and sensual, erotic love-scenes.


Krista Sullivan:
This film is one of my all time favorites because of the characters realism, believability, and the the honest approach to lesbian relationships. The love scenes are very intense, sexy, and again realistic. Any lesbian, bisexual, or bi-curious female should take a look at this film for an eye opener and will no doubt find something close to their own lives. Guys will like the hot girls for sure. Karyn Dwyer is one of the prettiest actresses in Canada. A 10/10 in my book.

Build-up: 1   Kissing: 2   Love-scenes: 3   Movie overall: 1
This movie was very badly done, boring to watch, phoney erotica and phoney feelings.
Some aspects of the movie was ok and some of the acting was exceptional. The lesbian scenes in the movie were poorly acted and poorly played out.

This story has classic moments and songs you may never see anywhere else, ("I'm not a f****** drag Queen" and "I'm in love with J. C.") but tried to develop too many characters instead of quaulity of character. Entertaining and a guilty pleasure.
