Women’s Dark Drama and Comedy Shorts

The strength and resilience of the lesbian community and family is at the fore of this diverse program of shorts. United States: Easy Abby is about a 31 year-old lesbian mechanic, chronic seducer, and truth teller who is great in bed, but mostly wants to be left alone. In Episode 7 of Season 2 of this series, we meet her bipolar mother plus a new love interest, who may not be who she says she is! When Natalie spontaneously runs into her ex at a party, she is forced to confront her feelings, and juggle her feelings for her new love interest in Tell Me TwiceHeld Down by a Shadow is the story of a teenager who is lonely, self-medicated and, most of all, afraid. Scarlett wants to take the next step in her relationship and have sex. But there's just one problem---the closer she gets to her girlfriend, the closer her nighty "visitor" gets. When her devoutly Catholic mother walks in on her and her girlfriend, a 16-year-old Maricruz is sent to the local church to undergo conversion therapy; while there, she discovers that the priest who runs the program is harboring a dark secret. Three women gather for a Post-Apocalyptic Potluck just as the world comes to an end. India: Tara is a feisty teenager living with her single mother: A proud and elaborate woman, who resists her daughter's fleeting outbursts of rebellion in Devi (Goddess). Israel: How many chocolates does it take to Heal a broken heart? Brazil: Despite her efforts and dissatisfaction, Eva is unable to end her relationship in Setback.
