a film by Taryn Rothstein

“If you tell her let’s leave at 12:15 to go somewhere, she may or may not be ready by 12:30 or quarter of one.  And it makes no difference to her whatsoever!”—Nancy Uram


“Well, it’s all true. I don’t know what to say except that I don’t wear a watch anymore.... I just will not be pushed anymore!”—Karen Metcalf


Nancy & Karen are longtime friends who have lived together since 2007
