Once again New Queer Visions showcase a stunning collection of wondrous short films, in a series of six tales that between them highlight the stark repercussions of a threesome, long suppressed home truths coming out in the open, the ever unwavering hope
that love beckons between the sheets of a one-night stand, a poignant variant on the theme of the
Good Samaritan, and from a compelling insight into a mother / daughter relationship,
to a striking reflection of a life lived without the inherent joy for living.
