HEDGE is set in Oakland after the housing market collapse. Jen, Jason, Lily, and David are friends and neighbors living in overpriced bungalows now encroached on by foreclosures. As their “transitional” neighborhood is destabilized, the four retreat together behind the fence of Jen’s bucolic garden. But a shocking incident of violence on their street forces them out of their refuge to face the realities of the neighborhood they call home. A funny and fierce story, HEDGE asks: What boundaries do we need for protection? What boundaries do we need to cross?
