The Roommate
Fifty-something Sharon is a recently divorced busybody. Financially, she needs a roommate to share her expenses. Emotionally, she needs a roommate to break the isolation of her Iowa home.  Enter Robyn, also in her mid-fifties, who is looking for a calm quiet place to hide from her past and start over. As Sharon begins to pick at Robyn’s secrets, things spiral out of control like a cross between Thelma and Louise and Breaking Bad.
