Production Description
Retha and Nina Baker have always been close—folding laundry together, chasing fireflires together, and enduring the summer heat together. But when their mother dies unexpectedly and their neighbor, George, returns home from college, the sisters’ relationship begins to fray and long-held desires threaten to tear them apart. Set on the outskirts of an all-black town in rural Kansas, Sweet is a coming of age story about the sacrifices we make to hold on to the ones we love.
