Lianna (Linda Griffiths) and her husband Dick (Jon DeVries) have been unhappily married for a few years due to Dick’s arrogance to Lianna. One day she falls in love with a university professor, Ruth (Jane Hallaren). Once their relationship is revealed Dick feels he has been sexually betrayed, Lianna’s children treat them with curiosity, and her friends almost don’t care with their ambivalence.

“Lianna premiered the year I came out and parallels my life at that time. It is the story of a married woman who falls in love with a lesbian. Needless to say it is close to my heart!” — Cynthia “Sam” Salmons
