A lifetime demanding self-defense. One night they fought back.
One hot night in August 2006, a group of young African American lesbian friends are harassed in a gay friendly neighborhood of New York City. They defend themselves and a fight ensues. Charged with gang assault and labeled a “Lesbian Wolfpack” in the mainstream media, four of the women begin an emotional and psychological battle as they claim self-defense.
