"Sometimes love doesn't look like what we expect..."

Set in the final days of World War II at Miss Mary’s Press and Curl beauty parlor and women’s boarding house in Memphis, Tennessee, "Saturday Night/Sunday Morning" unites a group of young women whose lives have been affected by the loss of men to the war and the upheaval of social attitudes that followed.

When sisters Taffy and Mabel tire of Leanne’s ongoing depression over a lack of correspondence from her soldier sweetheart, Bobby, they persuade new lodger and aspiring writer, Gladys, to write to Leanne in Bobby’s hand. As their lies spiral out of control, the girls and Miss Mary must learn to navigate the nuances of love, sexuality and sisterhood.
