Lesbian moms (played by Jody Christopherson and ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK’s Laura Gómez [Flores]) are at odds with what to do when their 6-year-old son is sent home from school for wearing a dress.
85 minsLatina lesbians in all stages of life experience love and loss in these short films. An unexpected guest crashes the wedding of an elderly couple in AMIGAS WITH BENEFITS while a young woman’s understanding of herself is challenged by a stranger in a bar in ENCUENTRO; The future of a young couple’s relationship hangs the balance in CAFÉ DESUELADO; In UNIFORM lesbian moms butt heads over what to do when their son is sent home from school for wearing a dress; and JEANNE CORDOVA: BUTCHES, LIES, AND FEMINISM pays tribute to one of the founders of the West Coast LGBT movement. Each piece is colored by the excitement of a new beginning, the bitterness of an ending, or hope for a better and brighter future.
