What is their why?

“Randa and Patte Starr are incredibly inspiring women. Their attitudes on life and love, and unconditional kindness serve a reminder that despite the current dismal realities, we should all be afforded an escape. “Life’s a smorgasbord and most dumb fucks are starving,” Patte remarks as she lays out a supply of craft service in her kitchen that could feed an army. We need to hear from women who, despite having all the odds against them, are able to rise up out of darkness. Enough cynicism, this is a film about perseverance because we are all survivors of something.”
