LGBT Best Scene Screenplay: Secondhand Heart. by Amber Nardolillo

Reese is a commitment-phobic lesbian who can’t be in the same room with her homemaker sister Rachel without them verbally eviscerating each other, but, when Rachel’s marriage falls apart, Reese is forced to take her sister in, along with her two kids and their dog until they can get back on their feet. Along the way Reese rediscovers her passion for music, the importance of family and that her first may be the only love that ever mattered.
