CONSUMMATING THE MARRIAGE

Dahlia (Jane Wilde) is looking over a contract intently while an older man, Roger, silently sits across from her. The atmosphere is business-like as Dahlia flips through the pages, although the discomfort between them is undeniable.

It's soon revealed that Roger is her parent and that, nearing retirement, he has agreed to sign over his company (worth billions) to Dahlia. But there is a condition... Dahlia is a lesbian, and Roger - a man of dated convictions - refuses to sign over the company until Dahlia marries and consummates the marriage with a man, with the expectation that Dahlia will produce an heir. To that end, they have drawn up a contract, and if Dahlia wants to continue enjoying her luxurious lifestyle, she'll have to agree to the terms. But as Dahlia finally signs the papers, there is a defiant glint to her eyes...

FOREIGN AFFAIRS

Brenda (Aila Donovan), a flight attendant, is in full uniform as she packs her suitcase. But as she finishes packing, about to leave, she looks at a ring holder sitting on her dresser. She opens the ring holder, revealing multiple men's wedding bands that glint in the light. She runs her fingers along the bands as she admires them, smiling coldly to herself before snapping the lid closed.

WATCH YOUR STEP

SCENE OPENS on Bill (John Strong) in his bedroom. He seems nervous and anxious as he puts the finishing touches on the room, smoothing out wrinkles on the bed and arranging the pillows in a very specific way. He looks around the room, appraising all the details. He notices something is slightly off - there is a pillow where it shouldn't be on the bed. He rushes over, putting the pillow slightly askew. Judging by the care he is taking, it's clear that he is staging a very specific scene.
