A Sure Thing

They have an easy familiarity between them that would make you think they have been friends their entire life. They also are very passive aggressive, a lot of their conversations have double meanings. There is a lot of weight in their silence.
Is There Life on Mars?
"Is there Life on Mars?" follows two best friends, Nieves and Jessie, as they grapple with love, longing, identity, and self-knowing. Though the two could banter for days, there is more to be discovered in what they don't say to each other.
