Two very different women bump into each other at a funeral parlor as they are making final arrangements to bury their husbands. The strangers discover that it’s not husbands plural – it’s one dead man who lived a double life. Their fight turns into a bond in the journey of coming to terms with their new reality.


ARTESIA COLLINS- Black woman, middle-aged, with a down-home demeanor.

MELODY COLLINS- Black woman, middle-aged, refined to the point of being stuck-up in her demeanor.
