Rani Noir is a thirty-one year old co-creative director for a small advertising agency in the city. It's the end of the 90's, but she's had romantic ideals of finding Mr. Right since she was a child, when her father first spun the tale of Cinderella.

However, to keep Rani's head out of the sky is Rani's best friend Addison Caruthers, who pulls no punches in reminding Rani that true love doesn't exist, nor should she spend any more time wasted on trying to find it.

Rani cannot accept Addison's  beliefs, so when she meets business owner and out lesbian Kendall Avery, Rani believes she has found her true love finally, despite that true love being a woman.  

The attraction is mutual, and Kendall Avery (who's never been in love) gives herself wholly to the adventure. Unfortunately, in the midst of their incredible whirlwind of laughter, fun times, and inexhaustible sexual appetite for one another, Kendall becomes aware that she and Rani may be the casualties of Sharon Sweeny, a black market baby swindler with an M.O. strikingly similar to the real life Georgia Tann.

Follow Rani, Kendall and Addison on this journey of self-discovery, and experience with them the full spectrum of feeling that comes with getting what you wish for.



"Absence Of Fear" JEWEL 1998 -  Lyrics


Inside my skin
There is this space...
It twists and turns
It bleeds and aches

Inside my heart
There's an empty room.
It's waiting for lightning;
It's waiting for you

I am wanting, and...
I am needing you
To be here
Inside the absence of fear

Muscle and sinew
Velvet and stone...
This vessel is haunted
It creaks and moans

My bones call to you
In a separate skin.
I make myself translucent
To let you in, boy...

I am wanting, and...
I am needing you
To be here
Inside the absence of fear

There is the splendor of this
Secret inside of me
And it knows that you're no stranger,
You're my gravity

My hands will adore you
Through all darkness aim, they will
Lay you out in moonlight
And reinvent your name

For I am wanting, and...
I am needing you
To be here...
I need you near...
Inside the absence of fear.
