Go for Sisters
Bernice and Fontayne grew so close, people said they could "go for sisters," but time sent them down different paths. Twenty years later, those paths cross: Fontayne a recovering addict fresh out of jail, Bernice her new parole officer. When Bernice’s son Rodney goes missing on the Mexican border, Bernice realizes she needs someone with the connections to navigate Rodney’s world without involving the police... and turns to her old friend. The pair enlist the services of disgraced detective Freddy Suárez and plunge into the seedy underbelly of Tijuana, forced to unravel a complex web of human traffickers, smugglers, and corrupt cops before time runs out for Rodney. As much a story of relationships as a story of crime, GO FOR SISTERS is a welcome return to the border for master filmmaker and two-time Oscar nominee John Sayles (“Lone Star,” “Passion Fish”).
