DICHOTOMY (Short Film Teaser Trailer)

Jane struggles to embrace her femininity as a butch lesbian. She shaves her head, which propels her on a humorous and twisted journey of self discovery. In the process, she has a debate with herself in the bathroom mirror as her demonic feminine side tries to suppress her innate masculinity. Eventually she finds peace and freedom in androgyny and discovers humanity is independent of sexual identity.
