by Gwen Flager

Seven charming and sometimes fiery Southern lesbians volunteer to plan the first LGBTQ prom for the local high school students. The twenty plus years of life since college have not dulled the jealousy and unrequited love of a few of the old friends. A successful sorority sister returns to town determined to romance the woman she has loved all of her life. Grief and mourning are on full display as the lovers expose their separate pain. As prom night arrives, plans unravel, infidelities are revealed and these women are forced to confront their fears. The first dance commences at dusk on the worn floor of the cafĂ© in hopes that dreams really can come true.
