Do the right thing, at the right time.

Sightings is a sexy, humorous short film about the trials of romantic connection. Two beautiful, urbane African American lesbians first sight and cruise each other in a laundromat. The tension builds as they pursue each other through a series of near connections and missed opportunities. Meanwhile, each woman enters her own private world of fantasy about the other.
