An instant classic. Treading Water is an unforgettable romance that stays with you long after the credits roll. Casey and Alex share an unshakable bond, having created a perfect life for themselves in upscale Massachusetts. But demons continue to plague Casey as her mother refuses to accept that her little girl has not grown up to be the perfect daughter she'd always dreamed about. As Casey tries to sustain each precarious relationship, it begins to appear as though her fragile existence might rip apart at the seams. One of the most honest and subtly moving depictions of lesbian love to come out of the US in the last decade. Treading Water has already earned its place as a consummate example of the genre.
