Laurence Anyways tells the story of an impossible love between Frederique and her long-term boyfriend Laurence, a man who reveals his inner desire to become his true self: a woman. Set during the late 1980s and early 1990s, the story spans a decade, chronicling the doomed love of Fred and Laurence, as well as the trials and tribulations that they face. It charts ten years in the relationship of a male-to-female transsexual's relationship with her lover.

Finding Me: Truth takes us back to the urban story of friendship, love, and relationships in life of Faybien Allen (RayMartell Moore). A year later the young Mr. Allen's world is defined by colliding truths and false realities that are brought to light in this sequel. He is forced to acknowledge and reconcile his naïve ways, if he is to capture the heart of his true love again. He befriends the most unlikely character Jay (Maurice Murrell) and is introduced to a world of the unknown. Harsh choices and the darker side of life outline Jay's truth. Very much the survivor in his environment, Jay's story will leave you wanting to delve deeper. Faybien's two best friends, Greg (Eugene Turner) and Amera (J'Nara Corbin), a year later are no wiser to their myths and self-conceived identities. Amera tragically falls into the trap of the crazy girlfriend. When a 4-month relationship and singing career aren't enough to occupy her neurotic and obsessive mind. She begins to suspect her boyfriend (Gabe) to be cheating on her, which forces her to confront her quietly-kept issues. While Greg seems to be every woman and man's fantasy all wrapped up in the charm of the urbane gentleman, his life mantra of being free and having fun has gotten him in a situation where his hands are twice as full. Recently being laid off from work and dealing with his own lack of financial stability/misfortune, the impact of his shattered self-esteem and identity, push him to take a harder look at his own mirror of truth. Truth explores the depth and intimacy of these friendships, the uncertain path of life and how our decisions are forged in the midst of it all
