They say in times of need it's better to have a friend than money. But is that really true?
The relationship of three life-long friends is sorely tested when they consider forming a Pardna. A popular Jamaican tradition, a Pardna is a partnership among friends to save collectively for life's little emergencies. But in this case it may be the friendship that needs saving.

Pat Cumper's timely drama about sex, death, friendship, love, and of course, money.
