Synopsis for DAD: Stuck on a deserted highway on a cold winter night, a father and son attempt to come to terms with their strained relationship. The drama unfolds as the two men discuss life including marriage, infidelity, manhood, drugs, and education. Another day in the life of Black men in America searching for hope and love.

Synopsis for THE STUTTERING PREACHER: The story revolves around Clarence Jackson, III, Pastor for the New Zion Baptist Church and Efay. As the pursuit for sex, love and happiness takes us on a ride with a stuttering preacher and a stubborn woman. Is it a game of win or lose, or will they both end up with a box of chocolates?
