Nola Darling lives and works in Brooklyn and divides her spare time between three admirers and a lesbian friend. How long can she keep this fragmented lifestyle going? And how can she convince Jamie, Greer and Mars that none of these men can have an exclusive claim on her? 35mm screening from the Eye archive.
