What Would You Share In Private?(2015) Directed by Trent England
When Susana leaves Romania with a dream of experiencing a richer life, she arrives in Boston, a city full of strangers and foreign culture. She settles into an apartment and eases into her new life by writing in a journal every evening and committing a private life to its pages.

Kieran just got diagnosed with HIV... he's pretty down about it. Will he be able to stay positive?(2015) Directed by Christian Daniel Kiley
Kieran (Christian Kiley) goes to get tested for HIV, something he's done many times before. While he waits for his results, he asks the counselor administering the test (Tommy Derrah) about all the questions regarding his 'risk factors.' If the test relies on a chemical reaction to produce its result, then how do his 'risks' 'factor' into the chemistry of the test? A fair question, but an irrelevant one. His test has come back positive.
Three months on, Kieran still hasn't told anyone about his HIV status. Not his roommate, not even his best friend Allie (Amy DePaola). The only person he opens up to is his therapist Alan (Lance Williams), who he finds (ironically) attractive.
After a fight with Allie, Kieran, feeling alienated and detached, makes his way downtown to a small gathering of young gay men, who are smoking crystal meth-- and engaging in the usual risky behaviors.
After missing the next night of work due to the comedown, Allie appears at Kieran's doorstep to confront him about whatever is going on. Kieran relents, and (finally) lets her in. After a difficult heart-to-heart, Allie seems to finally understand why her friend has been so miserable and distant-- but the story doesn't end here. There are plenty more complications coming down the pike.
Guilt-ridden and penniless after her father suddenly dies and the bank takes their small farm, Sarah, blaming herself for both of these losses, heads to the big city where its streets become her home and her music is her only refuge.
