Helen has worked hard for her success. Now, after the prim-and-proper real estate agent’s husband ditches her for a younger model, she finds herself back in her small New England home town. Still smarting over his betrayal, a messy night out only brings further humiliation when she face-plants on the sidewalk … only to be rescued by her old nemesis, Alice.
Alice, an aging hippie mourning the death of her husband, has considered Helen her complete opposite since they were schoolgirls. Yet much to their surprise, as the township divides bitterly over whether to allow the sale of recreational marijuana within its borders, they find themselves drawn into an unexpected partnership. Can this unlikely duo make a go of their joint venture without killing each other first?
A charming examination of the human capacity for growth, hope, and finding love, in all its forms, in the second half of our lives, Alice and Helen’s Joint Venture shines a light on friendship while delivering plenty of laughs along the way.
