    • Synopsis
    • Transformation Awaits based on Award Winning short film "NEIGHBORS". Maggie, a shut-in who spends her days watching television, eating snack cakes and creating strange art out of found objects. She survives on the weekly allowance her sister Sarah slips under her closed door. But when their mother becomes deathly ill, Sarah begs Maggie to emerge and visit their mother before it's too late. As desperate as Maggie is to be by her mother’s side, she is trapped by her agoraphobia and a debilitating sense of anxiety.
      One day, Lamay, a feisty transgender woman in an abusive relationship, moves into the apartment next door. Suddenly, Maggie finds that the drama that unfolds outside her window is far more compelling than her beloved television shows and a great distraction from the drama of her own life. Intrigued by Lamay and her boyfriend, Mark, Maggie is drawn into a magical new friendship. This unlikely relationship transforms them both, giving Maggie the strength to leave her home, and Lamay the will to leave her boyfriend.
