Work and life partners Kate and Leigh share everything — from their apartment to the bar they co-own. When a slump in their sex life becomes obvious, they must face how entwined their lives have become, and reconsider their relationship, to humorous ends. 

Director’s Statement: Joey Ally 

Partners is a simple film — a little slice of life about a lesbian couple who get into a fight one morning. Not a fight that will end them — or will it? And it’s definitely not funny...but it is. Y’know...the way most couples fight. It is not enough that we see “nontraditional” protagonists unadorned and un-stylized, as regular, irregular, people. What we really wanted to do here was to make something in which the characters are so specifically themselves that we feel we know them immediately, and that the knowing makes their story universal.
