Ten years after tragedy drives a group of college friends apart, two are unexpectedly reunited. Ceci, fleeing a broken relationship, tries to find a new home by moving in with Nina. But when their attempts to reconnect uncover old wounds, Nina's repression is pitted against Ceci's self-destructive tendencies. RUBBERMATCH is an intimate exploration of complex, contemporary female friendships, examining questions of grief, sexuality, and the pasts that haunt us. When can a friend's help become an act of violence?
