Hidden Potential,
or The Straight Gene

(full length/unproduced)
Recipient of a 2012 Grants for Artist Projects (GAP) grant from Artist Trust.
Brief synopsis: In the near future, people look to their genes for guidance in exercise regimens, employment, romance, and even what hobbies to pursue. Charlie, a gay man in a committed relationship, is told that according to his genes he's straight. Charlie must decide if his genes really are his destiny, or if he should go against science, and follow his heart.
