The Sympathy Card: is an unconventional comic love triangle about three women wrestling with living in the present, mortality, and bad first dates. When Emma’s cancer takes a turn for the worse, she presents her new wife Josie a deathbed order: find someone new while Emma is still around to approve of her choice. Reluctantly, Josie embarks on a painfully awkward pursuit to honor Emma’s wishes and play the field. After many hilarious failures, Josie finds herself developing feelings for Siobhan, her free-spirited florist. As her surprising bond with Siobhan deepens, Josie faces the dilemma of a time-limited present with Emma versus a possible future with Siobhan.

Treacle: When friends Belle & Jesse go away for the weekend and drunkly hook up, what seems like an awkward slip up to firmly heterosexual Jessie in fact an incredible betrayal to bisexual Belle
