“It’s All Tru”
Love, sex, and pharmaceuticals are put to the test when a gay couple’s open relationship is threatened with dangerous consequences.
“Speed Dating for Sperm Donors”
Can a lesbian couple find Mr. Right? When Helen and Paige set out to find a sperm donor who can be known to their future child but not involved their upbringing, the normally anonymous challenge becomes even more intimate than expected.
“Bar Mitzvah Boy”
When a sixty-something divorce lawyer convinces a young rabbi to help him get a quickie Bar Mitzvah, the pair embark on a hilarious crash course that leads them into sentimental reflections on their faith and family.
“Quick Bright Things”
When a father and son set out for a quick visit with family for dinner, their pit stop turns into a tense weekend-long event when nobody around them understands or knows how to deal with the son’s schizophrenia diagnosis.
In a scintillating back-and-forth puzzle of “what if,” the foundations of what we know and how we know them come into question through two interwoven narratives.
