GAME GIRLS

by Alina Skrzeszewska

synopsis

Game Girls follows Teri and her girlfriend Tiahna as they navigate their relationship through the chaotic world of Los Angeles’ Skid Row, aka the “homeless capital of the U.S.” A dilemma fuels the tensions between the two women: if Tiahna has resigned herself to a life of fending for yourself and petty smuggling in the streets of Skid Row, Teri is driven by a powerful desire to move on. Together with other homeless women, they attend a weekly Expressive Arts workshop where they are looking to reflect, dream, and heal. Can their love survive the violence of their past and their current environment?
