Synopsis
BEESWAX revolves around the personal and professional entanglements of twin sisters, Jeannie and Lauren, living in Austin, Texas. Jeannie co-owns a vintage clothing store with Amanda, a semi-estranged friend who she fears is trying to end their partnership. Lauren leads a looser, less tethered existence and is considering getting out of the country altogether. When Jeannie receives an email from Amanda threatening a lawsuit, she calls her law student ex-boyfriend, Merrill for help. Eager for distraction from his own problems, he begins helping the sisters with theirs. Imbued with an innate charm, BEESWAX is a story about families, friends, lovers and those awkward moments that bring all of them together.
