Behind a Masquerade of Rhymes

Winner > Best LGBT Film
It’s a dilemma old as time; how do you mend a broken heart? Safely tucked in her home, Jesse Collins uses her quick wit as a shield to keep the world at arm’s length. Calvin, her best
friend, steps up to meddle as only a best friend would, trying to help her start living again. Through the parks and rec poetry program, Jesse meets Hannah, a housewife who was looking for a hobby. The two find more than they expected, but could she possibly be the one to inspire Jesse to move on? In this feature, friendships are tested and tried, and lives and loves are rewritten with unexpected endings.
