PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Bennett (Jacob York) is really trying to keep it together right now. He broke up with his boyfriend and moved in with his best friend Cooper (Johnny Drago.)
It’s election season, and he’s the speechwriter for Georgia’s only gay state senator, Allison Haines (Melissa Carter), who’s engaged in a bloody campaign against conservative darling Peggy Musgrove (Marcie Millard.)
His co-worker Kimberly (Suehyla El-Attar), wants to experience some vicarious thrills, pressuring Bennett to give into the flirtatious advances of their chief-of-staff, Adam (John Benzinger.)
Then Bennett’s ex is attacked in the parking lot of a gay bar. Bennett and Cooper are informed by a police detective (Michael Henry Harris) that the assault can’t be classified as a hate crime. Because in Georgia, hate crimes against homosexuals don’t legally exist.
Their frustration and fear eventually turns to rage, as they realize that “acceptance” simply isn’t enough- they’re still living in a society that relegates them to second-class status. They’re not respected. They’re not feared. It’s time for that to change.
An Oscar Wilde-meets-Fight Club fever dream about how good ideas go bad, with fascinating forays into American politics, bomb building, and pistachios.
