Storyline

Three different scenarios, intercut, all using the same words but with very different meanings. A corrupt cop is more interested in the money on the criminals he catches than justice; a young woman discovers she's pregnant, and her boyfriend is unfeeling; and a young man calls a prostitute it's the first time for both, and neither can go through with it. Ultimately, all the stories come together. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

From a director and an actor
19 July 2002 | by (Tucson, Arizona) – See all my reviews

Greetings from Tucson, me and my actor (Layton Matthews) would like to express our respect to Jeff Wadlow for such an outstanding job. Although our film Liberata Me was in the same film festival competing under you, we are rooting for you. We feel you deserve the award!

Hey, the great thing about your film is, we don't feel embarrassed to lose against you! Respects from your peers in the industry!!
