‘Go for Sisters’ Trailer: LisaGay Hamilton and Yolanda Ross head to Mexico in new crime drama

Variance Film has released the first official trailer for John SaylesGo for Sisters.

The film stars LisaGay Hamilton and Yolanda Ross as two friends on the opposite sides of the law.

Bernice (Hamilton) and Fontayne (Ross) grew up the closest of friends, but time sent them down different paths. Twenty years later, those paths cross: Fontayne is a recovering addict fresh out of jail, and Bernice is her new parole officer.

When Bernice’s son Rodney goes missing on the Mexican border, his shady associates all in hiding or brutally murdered, Bernice realizes she needs someone with the connections to navigate Rodney’s world without involving the police… and turns to her old friend. The pair enlist the services of disgraced ex-LAPD detective Freddy Suárez (Edward James Olmos) and plunge into the dim underbelly of Tijuana, forced to unravel a complex web of human traffickers, smugglers, and corrupt cops before Rodney meets the same fate as his partners. As much a story of relationships as a story of crime, GO FOR SISTERS is a welcome return to the border for master filmmaker John Sayles (Lone Star).

Go for Sisters opens in select theaters on Nov. 8 and Nov. 15.
