ABOUT

 

Coffee Bluff Pictures presents THE BILL, a comedy written and directed by Caralene Robinson. Lena and ten other women couldn't be more excited to celebrate Barbie's 35th birthday with the best of intentions. Barbie has accumulated a diverse group of friends from many places, including church, the gym, college and law school. When an unexpectedly huge bill arrives, the happy birthday dissolves into drama. As Lena works tirelessly to align the group, she ultimately reaches a point of no return. Told from Lena's point of view, THE BILL comedically celebrates friends from all walks of life, as they react to an experience that is all too common.
