Before the Lights Come Up
Hiding in the Open examines one night in the life of two capricious twenty-somethings searching for direction. Good natured but rebellious Chase, fleeing domesticity, joins his lesbian party-girl companion Denny on a tour through Los Angeles nightlife. Abandoned by her fiance and desperate to escape the solitude of her apartment, recovering alcoholic Hazel embarks on a parallel journey of self-discovery punctuated by the beckoning of a whiskey bottle. It's an emotional experience, finding poetry in it's images and truth in the spaces we try to ignore.
