Keeper is a powerful, intriguing story about a connection between two women–the memory of which carries such weight from each of their pasts that the only means of self-preservation has been to try to shut it down. We witness an evening in the lives of Avalon and Constance–the former in her early 20s, the latter 16 years older–who have been bonded and blistered by death, doubt and distance. As the details of their shared history emerge, long-buried feelings and hidden truths rise to the surface. Stirring, humorous and resonant, Keeper is one part cat-and-mouse, and one part long lost love.
