The 'Watermelon Woman' was the name given to a beautiful yet elusive black actress from the 1930s. Why was this her only billing? It is a mystery that perplexes Cheryl, a young black filmmaker based in Philadelphia, so she sets out to solve it by making a documentary about this forgotten star. Her research takes her to the depths of a terrifying 'lesbian archive' and to the heights of academia, with the irrepressible Camille Paglia giving an impromptu lecture on the hidden meaning of watermelons.

"Tabatabai draws a convincing portrait of a woman desperately suppressing her natural desires out of concern for her own safety, a double lie that eats away her insides, and there's a genuine erotic charge to her and Sarnau's scenes together." - Variety
