About this submission

Titled after the Spanish word for "gossips," "Chismosas" centers around Maya, who is hoping to avoid judgment about her lackluster love life from her family. Her solution is to bring her friend (with benefits) Jonathon along to a family party as a fake boyfriend. However, a series of mistranslations and miscommunications, aided by a devious cousin, leads to rumors of pregnancy, cheating, and immaculate conception. This culminates in the exact kind of embarrassing confrontation with her family that Maya was hoping to avoid, but also an unexpected chance at love.
