New Jersey police lieutenant, Laurel Hester, and her registered domestic partner, Stacie Andree, both battle to secure Hester's pension benefits when she is diagnosed with terminal cancer.
Although the film is set in New Jersey, it was filmed in New York due to its more generous tax incentives for filmmakers.
Hell! If you and I got married tomorrow, *I'd* be entitled to your benefits.
Laurel Hester: Wait, is that a proposal?
Dane Wells: Oh my god!
Laurel and Stacie first encounter each other at a volleyball game with each playing on opposite teams. Stacie serves to Laurel, whereupon Laurel's team successfully returns the ball and the game is over. However, in volleyball, only the side that is serving can score a point and they must also win by two. For the game to be over, Laurel's side would need to get the ball back to serve the winning point. The director may have decided to skip that in order to keep the story moving.
