“If Not Now, When?” tells the story of friendship, love, second chances and new beginnings.
Having met when they were 14 and bonded by an event that changes their lives forever at 18, “If Not Now, When?”, introduces us to TYRA (Meagan Good), SUZANNE (Mekia Cox), PATRICE (Tamara Bass), and DEIDRE (Meagan Holder). Over the course of their lives, fights, disagreements and loss of love have caused friction and distance to manifest between some of them, particularly Suzanne and Patrice, who have been on the outs for some years. When Tyra, who is mother to 15 year old JILLIAN (Lexi Underwood), suffers a crisis, all four women are drawn back together.
Suzanne is stuck in an untenable marriage to TREVOR (Jon Chaffin), but has alienated herself from her friends, so she feels she has no one to turn to. Deidre has a second chance at love with her ex-husband JACKSON (McKinley Freeman), just as a career opportunity presents itself. Patrice, having boarded up her heart and her dreams, is suddenly faced with a chance at love and happiness with WALTER (Edwin Hodge), but her secrets threaten to tear that apart.
Now that all four women are brought back together to help Tyra face her demons, they soon discover that they also need each other, and that sisterhood that once made them inseparable, to make it through what is currently happening in their individual lives. Tears, laughter and most importantly heart are at the center of this poignant drama. “If Not Now, When?” captures the essence of those female bonding movies that were prevalent in the 90’s, while telling a story that is stirring, timely and will most certainly tug at your emotions.
Rounding out the cast is Todd Williams, Kyle Schmid, Niles Fitch and Valarie Pettiford.
