“Happy End?!” opens Queer Projections fall film series

Join us on Wednesday, October 1 at the Heritage Playhouse in Gibsons for the opening film in the Queer Projections Fall Film Series. With short films from Out in Schools’ Youth Short Video Contest winners.

Lucca’s carefully planned and promising law career is jeopardized when she meets attractive loner Valerie and joins her on a mission for justice. With everything hanging in the balance, can the collision of their two worlds really lead to a happy end? You be the judge.

This high-energy romantic road movie co-stars the beautiful Sinha Gierke (It’s Not Over) as aspiring law student Lucca, and the stunning Verena Wustkamp as her new friend Valerie. Irresistible chemistry blossoms between them as the two women embark on a wild adventure to deliver the ashes of recently deceased friend Herma to her final resting place — against the wishes of Herma’s family. Invigorated by Valerie’s free spirit, Lucca rebels from her father’s conservative plans as her dreams for the future evolve.

Sixteen-year-old Billie is blindsided by the news that her mother is planning to transition from female to male and that, during this time, Billie will live at her father’s house.
