When long-term couple Manny and Russ (Matt Palazzolo and Rob Warner) decide to call their marriage quits and get a divorce, they also – quite strangely – decide to celebrate the occasion together. The pair head to the Central Coast of California for some wine, sun… and more wine! When Byron (Thomas Hobson), their close friend, joins up with them, an unexpected threesome ensues and the trip becomes the post-divorce party to end all post-divorce parties. This witty, sharply-written new film gives freshness to the classic break-up movie by bringing in a queer perspective and exploring the complicated similarities that many couples, both queer and straight, face throughout their love stories. Stone Fruit is a charming, sexy and very funny new “anti-romantic comedy” for anyone who has ever fallen OUT of love.
The new twelve-minute short film Mass follows Trey (played by writer-director-star Linus Ignatius), a man who finds his usual body dysmorphia compounded by the fact that he is HIV-positive – and pretty freshly diagnosed. He’s soon stuck in the middle of a perfect storm of “I am not enough” feelings. At night, he invites a macho, joyless man over to take advantage of him in the bedroom, and we see how Trey, in his self-loathing, brings people into his life who abuse him – reinforcing his role as the victim. But there is a happy ending to all of this, starting as the next day dawns. Trey, continuing on with his bulking progress, he becomes one pound heavier than the day before. A sexy, stylish and thought-provoking short film, Mass is now available to rent or download on-demand at TLAgay.

In the cold light of day, each member of this tight-knit group begins questioning the path they find themselves on.
