Woman Meets Girl
SHORT FILM CALLING CARD ANNABELLE, an awkward in her own skin forty-two-year-old woman, has invited eighteen-year-old TESSIE, an extroverted sex worker, to stay with her in her mother, Libby's home. Over a vodka-fueled game of Never Have I Ever, they challenge each other to reveal themselves. Through the game, Annabelle and Tessie explore their differences and similarities, especially their fractured relationships with their parents: Tessie's mom died when she was ten and her dad kicked her out, while Annabelle's dad left when she was young. Through their conversation, an undeniable chemistry builds between them that neither knows what to do with. While Tessie initiates contact, wordlessly extending the offer of a sexual liason, Annabelle's discomfort gets in the way and she brings the evening to a close. With the possibility of a deeper connection hanging in the air between them, Annabelle watches after Tessie, who heads off to bed.
