Summary: From 1911 to 1946, Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas lived together in Paris as husband and wife. Although they were not "out" as lesbians, the inseparable duo forged a prophetic and enduring same-sex union. In HUBBY/WIFEY, a modern lesbian couple shares a fever dream with their foremothers, Gertrude and Alice, of the joys and trials of gay marriage. The film pays homage to Stein's legendary salon of Parisian visionaries, Man Ray, Picasso, Dali and Buñuel and is set to a love letter Stein wrote late one night in the early 1920's for her beloved to find on the morning of her birthday.
