A Jewish lesbian performing the traditional duty of a rigid religious ceremony! In addition, a Jewish lesbian couple with their adopted child!? Friends and relatives join together to celebrate a lesbian couple’s Jewish baby-naming ceremony for their daughter, Prarie. Prarie is not only their daughter’s name but also a name for lesbian solidarity across boundaries of religion, race and sexuality. It is also a name for victory and the love of a lesbian community. The movie demonstrates new genuinely communal lives. (Kim Sun-ah)
