Love is the Answer Vol. 1 (Shorts)

Running Time: 66min

Category: Shorts

In all of these extraordinary, major new films, love proves to be an answer for each protagonist, although in four very different ways. Gender identity, social integration, sexuality, the pain and loneliness of a stranger in a strange land – the struggles are real, and very vividly told.
