Summary of the film:
A queer Black Mirror-like film. A new technology is used problematically, causing the relationship between two men, Vincent and Miguel to falter. A new pair of glasses that can change how your partner looks to you rises in popularity, causing relationship distress in the process. The film explores themes of queer romance, sex, beauty standards, and ethnic disparities.
Characters:
MIGUEL: age: 20’s, LEAD
Latinx man, gay, average body shape, kind but assertive. Hardworking man who is trying hard to keep his relationship afloat, but suspects Vincent might not have pure intentions.
Need to be able to speak a little bit of Spanish for the role or able to pronounce some words correctly, accents welcome.
VINCENT:age: 20’s LEAD
White man, gay, lean body shape vain, uninterested and privileged, manipulative, sweet when necessary. Once loved Miguel, but as time passed he became bored with the relationship and is seeking this new product.
