Steam is a 2007 film written and directed by Kyle Schickner, produced by FenceSitter Films, and starring Ruby Dee, Ally Sheedy and Kate Siegel.[1][2]


A college student, a single middle aged mother and an older widow meet in a steam room.

Elizabeth (Kate Siegel) is a college freshman, beginning to understand her sexual identity in the shadow of her strict Catholic parents. Laurie (Ally Sheedy) is just beginning a relationship with her son's young coach while her ex-husband tries to use their son against her. An older widow, Doris (Ruby Dee), after years of loneliness, has met a new man.

The film weaves their stories together, exploring the similarities that connect three very different women.
