EVEN THE SCORE (US) Director: Duane Chivon Ferguson

Even the Score tells the story of a young couple that is face with that very scenario and the choices that ultimately seal the fate of the relationship
LAYLA’S GIRL (US) Director: Nicole Sylvester
Carla’s life seems perfect to those looking in from the outside. She’s strong, intelligent, has a supportive man, a good job, and a promising future. What isn’t visible is a life filled with longing and regret. Her only goal in life is to reverse the effects of her past and map out a course that will dictate her future. That is until the death of her biological mother forces her to reevaluate her expectations of family and the meaning of unconditional love.
