***********************************

Free-spirit Cicci's single life upends while serving on a jury when Todd, a conservative juror, objects to a life-saving treatment for Alia, a queer woman of color. Their destinies unravel to reveal they're inextricably intertwined. Are love and justice blind?

It’s a meaningful, entertaining and heartfelt social justice film. A combination of “You’ve Got Mail” meets “The Verdict."

***********************************

Genres: Romantic Comedy, Drama, Courtroom, LGBTQ+, Feel-Good, Banter.

This film will be led by Bay Area filmmaker, writer, director and producer C.M. Conway (please see below), featured in numerous media outlets. Her aim is to entertain while revealing a story about trying to find one's humanity in a sea of influences; and shining a light on the rights of the LGBTQ+ community. According the the Human Rights Campaign, over 75 anti-LGBTQ+ bills have been signed into law, and 500 bills have been introduced in the U.S. in 2023.

Your donation directly supports production and post-production of our film. With your help, we are slated to film in the Bay Area in August 2024. Our cinematographer is the multiple award-winning Lisa Stoll, who collaborated with us on our prior film now on Prime Video (scroll down page).

If your organization serves the LGBTQ+ community and would like to partner with us and receive a portion of our fundraising, please fill out our LGBTQ+ Organization Form.

Uplift the stories of minorities and an indie film that is a champion of diversity, gender equity and inclusiveness.
