Director Statement

If you ask about the secret goal of perfection, women will tell you that’s bullshit – they certainly aren’t perfect, nor could they become so.
But watch the behavior – the presentation of themselves on social media, the constant attention to detail combined with rampant self-criticism, and the prevalence to say “I’m sorry” when things aren’t quite well…perfect. Even things they can't possibly control.

This is a series about women learning and exercising the capacity to “lean on” rather than to “lean in.” They “lean on” each other in the deep emotional support women’s friendships offer each other even when complicated by biological sisterhood,
Our characters are millennials and Gen Z but the emotional territory is one familiar to every woman. The feelings are heartfelt but surrounded by laughter.
