Fall opens by presenting us with a broken couple: in a wintry cemetery, an unnamed twentysomething black woman speaks with her deceased sister in what appears to be an ongoing conversation. “You were always such a good listener, ” she tells her sister. Into the sisters’ midst arrives a stranger, Leslie, a twentysomething white woman. Through the course of their conversation, it is revealed that Leslie and the deceased woman were lovers; the sister died without ever having told her family – she died after having had a fight with Leslie over whether or not to tell them. Leslie recalls how her own family took the news very badly: they no longer speak to her. The two women reminisce about their missing loved one and, through this sentimental act, develop a friendship.
