About the movie
Suburban housewife Jean leads a seemingly simple life, backed by her husband Eddie’s career as a thief. But when Eddie betrays his partner, Jean and her baby flee, and Eddie’s old friend Cal protects them. After Cal’s mysterious disappearance, Jean befriends Teri (Marsha Stephanie Blake), and the two embark on a dangerous journey into the heart of Eddie’s underworld. I’M YOUR WIFE, a decidedly feminine version of 1970s crime novels. It’s about love, betrayal, motherhood, family, and how you claim your life.
