"Bleeding Heart" revolves around the union of two sisters who've never met.
As a yoga instructor, May (Jessica Biel) exudes an aura of calm, composure and balance. But she's apparently not over the fact that she was adopted as a child. She manages to track down her biological sister, Shiva (Zosia Mamet), a sex worker stuck in a stormy relationship with volatile pimp Cody (Joe Anderson). May immediately injects herself into the life of this practical stranger and makes it her mission to rescue Shiva from her abuser.
