New Orleans. 1940s. Blanche arrives at her sister’s tiny apartment in the lively French Quarter, her world falling apart and haunted by the loss of the family’s luxurious Southern mansion. With broken dreams and a desperate desire to cling on to her freedom, Blanche seeks comfort from her sister, Stella. But as tensions – and passions – rise, Blanche finds herself thrown into a catastrophic confrontation with Stella’s husband Stanley.
