Intriguing and compelling! This collection of short lesbian films will spark your interest and challenge your mind. "Wicked Desire" is about a girl who discovers that her elder sister is a lesbian but keeps it to herself, but still their mother finds out.  Commendable performances but not much of a surprise in terms of plot as the idea seems quite common already.  Still, the collection is worth checking out for the immense talent of actors and up and coming film makers.
