“A tangled web of human impulse.”
The New York Times

“One of the masters of American cinema. Don’t miss this.”
New York Magazine

“Roemer is known for only two films, both masterpieces: NOTHING BUT A MAN (1964) and THE PLOT AGAINST HARRY (1971) … The rediscovery of a third Roemer feature as good as the others is a cause for celebration and something of a miracle.”
Screen Slate

Unable to close old familial wounds, a woman strikes up a friendship with her neighbor only to find herself caught up in further family drama. A lost masterpiece, this third film directed by Michael Roemer (NOTHING BUT A MAN, THE PLOT AGAINST HARRY) came and went when it first aired on PBS.
