Bernice (LisaGay Hamilton) and Fontayne (Yolanda Ross) grew up the closest of friends, but time sent them down different paths. When they meet again after twenty years Fontayne is a recovering addict fresh out of jail, and Bernice is her new parole officer. After Bernice's son Rodney goes missing on the Mexican border—his shady associates all in hiding or brutally murdered—Bernice realizes she needs someone with the connections to navigate Rodney's world without involving the police... and turns to her old friend. The pair enlist the services of wily but nearly blind ex-cop Freddy Suárez (Edward James Olmos, Stand and Deliver, "Battlestar Galactica") and plunge into the dim underbelly of Tijuana, forced to unravel a complex web of human traffickers, smugglers and corrupt cops. As much a story of relationships as a story of crime, Go for Sisters is a welcome return to the border for acclaimed writer/director John Sayles (Lone Star, Men With Guns, Eight Men Out).
