Brooklyn (Clody Cates) is a cute French butch who makes her living as a thief. With a Parisian mother who was a prostitute and a New York father who has spent most of his life in prison, Brooklyn has been stealing from a very young age. She’s also a lover of women, lots of them, until she meets Robin (co-writer Khahtee Turner), a social worker with a heart in Oakland, California.
Robin is trying to make a difference in her urban community but finds that the system doesn’t allow her to do what’s best for her clients. The rules are stacked against them, and soon her supervisor sends her looking for a new job.
Brooklyn and Robin are falling in love, Brooklyn scared about this new experience, and Robin in disbelief that the object of her affections is both white and a thief. The solution? Expand into the bank robbery business and give to the poor, just like a modern day Robin Hood.
But it’s not a fairytale. Bank robbery is a dangerous profession, and it’s not always easy going between the two lovers. A new, refreshing love story with two very beautiful women, who are even sexier in bed together. Coupled with the issues it tackles related to social services and racism, and a great soundtrack, this dvd will be a nice addition to your lesbian romance collection. (AB)
