Neighbors Hortensia and Marion have shared a hedge β€” and a mutual hostility for one another β€” for ages.

Both women, one of whom is Black, and the other, white, have had impressive careers;

both have also recently been widowed.

When an unexpected event throws the women together and requires that they form a relationship, old wounds are reopened and disparate memories rehashed.

But will this finally bring them together, or are they destined to always be on opposite sides of the fence?
