Alex, a transgender youth, has been struggling with a secret pregnancy. However, time has run out for him and he must confess his condition to Jesse, his live-in boyfriend. Although they struggle in poverty, through their love and passion for one another, it’s clear they have forged a home together. To Alex’s surprise, Jesse offers a strikingly opposing view on how to deal with the pregnancy. Alex considers what he is willing to lose in order to live honestly and courageously.

Ozzy Villazon, of Bolivian and Nicaraguan descent, was born and raised in San Francisco. He graduated from the American Film Institute in the Directing Program where he received the Richard P.

It was also jury selected as one of six films from twenty-eight in his class to screen at the AFI Industry Showcase at the DGA. His newest film La Obra is currently beginning the festival circuit.
