High-schoolers Allegra and Tara meet when cast in the school play as Frances Willard and Mary Bannister - two historical leaders of the late-1800s Women's Christian Temperance Movement who shared a very close friendship. Through rehearsals, sleepovers and communions with ouija boards, Allegra and Tara explore just how similar - and dissimilar - they are to Frances and Mary.
