You think you know your friends, your neighbors, your spouse, but what happens when you suddenly find out they have a garage full of guns? This new dark comedy explores the complicated issue of gun proliferation when two young liberal couples are forced to confront their assumptions about who should own a gun - and why.
The time of easy answers regarding this issue is long gone. In the wake of current events, we are all forced to re-examine our strongly held beliefs about gun ownership. "Friends with Guns" explores the question of what we can compartmentalize...and what we can't. It pulls the curtain back and does all of this through a female lens.
