Belinda & Carlos
Belinda & Carlos is an account of the final days of a young couple. A deception is finally uncovered between the gun yielding couple. This ultimately leads to the standoff.

Ambivalence
A young couple (Jack & Amy) is watching a romantic movie together at home when suddenly Jack realizes there’s a football game on TV he really doesn’t want to miss. In an act of desperation to watch it, he tries to get his girlfriend out of the room without revealing his true motif (he knows that Amy really hates sports). Easier said than done. When his initial attempts miss their effect, tensions heat up with catastrophic results.

Attractive Opposites
Two women — complete strangers — with opposite looks happen to be talking on their cell phone near one another. Eventually, during the course of the overheard phone conversation, they realize that they both are dating the same guy.

Boss Revenge
Comedy – A bully supervisor gets a taste of his own medicine when a nerdy entry level programmer decides to ultimately stand up to him in a corny and cheesy “Office Space” way.

He must decide in the ultimate standoff to forgive her or to make her pay for her deception. Looking for any ethnicity that will pass for hispanic.
