Description

It starts with a crush and sometimes ends with a bad breakup – this series of shorts tackles all stages of the typical lesbian relationship. From Chicago, VERACITY is a coming-out story of an African American high school student and the responses she gets from those she loves most; TITS ON A BULL takes us to New Zealand where a young rugby star falls for her team-captain; BAGGAGE and WEDLOCKED (starring Whitney Mixter) reveal how some women handle a breakup or divorce; and LITTLE DOLL examines a grammar school first crush.
