Fabian Martin (HALFWAY TO MARS)
I know the Toronto community is both film savy and LGBT-friendly so it was important for me to enter my screenplay in a community that respects this particular genre. In regards to feedback, well, you did a reading of my screenplay….what can be better than that! I hope to parlay this recognition into a film version….I’m looking for investors!!
Watch the Screenplay Reading:
Genre: LGBT, Drama
Lucy is a transgender in the process of transitioning, determined to see it through at any and all costs. So when an opportunity arises to accelerate this process, she seizes it unabashedly. This decision though casts her unwillingly into the dark, violent world of prostitution and the ruthless, cold-blooded drug-dealing pimp behind it who goes by the name “Soup.” Here is where Lucy’s real transformation begins as she fights to escape Soup’s relentless grip and free herself from the dangerous vestiges of a debt she cannot pay.
