About The Film

Suburban housewife Jean (Rachel Brosnahan) lives a seemingly easy life, supported by husband Eddie's (Bill Heck) career as a thief. But when Eddie betrays his partners, Jean and her baby are forced to go on the run, and Eddie's old friend Cal (Arinzé Kene) is tasked with the job of keeping them safe.

After Cal mysteriously disappears, Jean befriends Teri (Marsha Stephanie Blake), and the two women set out on a perilous journey into the heart of Eddie's criminal underworld. A decidedly female take on crime dramas of the 1970s, I'M YOUR WOMAN is a tale of love, betrayal, motherhood, family and what it takes to claim your life as your own.
