An ex-convict enlists the aid of a smart and sexy high-schooler for a scheme he is hatching. But whose scheme is actually played out? Filmed in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, this bright, original screenplay adapted from Stephen Geller's novel, She Let Him Continue, is sparked by Weld's vivid performance.

Steve Kesten, the film's line producer, will provide film commentary and answer questions immediately following the screening.
