Summer 2020, NYC. Roommates Kaitlyn and Frances, months into the pandemic lockdowns, escape onto their rooftop, trying to hold the pieces of their friendship – and sanity – together. Finding distraction in the tales of Carla Horowitz, a Women's Airforce Service Pilot during WWII and the subject of Kaitlyn's thesis, the two confront uncomfortable present-day truths through their immersion in the past. Based on actual interviews with Carla and residents of NYC during the pandemic, Infinite Variety Productions intertwines the story of three women's lives, in a narrative that explores the unspoken sides of history.
