About this submission

Grace (Laksmi Hedemark) is a “normal” woman, or at least that’s what her partner Jack (Kyle Glenn) would like her to be. After he confides his fear that she might be attracted to women, Grace is unable to reassure him because, frankly, she doesn’t know. A rendez-vous with a beautiful stranger (Chess Lopez) shows Grace that a part of herself she’s long kept hidden might not be as scary as it seemed.
