Misty is determined to finally experience an orgasm but first she has to overcome the only thing, or person, that's in her way- White Jesus. Her priorities are tested in this dark comedy about freedom from religious guilt.
I grew up very involved in my family's Baptist church. Growing up my main concern was being "good enough" to get into heaven. I did everything the pastor taught a good Christian should do. I took great pride when church elders would tell my Grandmother how "good" I was. As I got older and experienced more of life, it became quite difficult to "do right" all the time. I was plagued with guilt which led to anxiety and becoming overly concerned with how I was viewed by others. Even though I now have a more expansive view of religion and spirituality, I still struggle with guilt around my life choices. I wonder if I live a life that pleases God. When Nicole told me her concept for GUILTY, I immediately related to the Mistie character. Even though she was struggling with Catholic guilt and sexual issues, the shame was universal. Overall, GUILTY was a great exercise in excising my personal relationship with religion and guilt while creating a tongue in check look at a young woman's struggle to reach the all elusive orgasm. I am proud of the work and grateful for the opportunity to further release my issues that relate to guilt. It is my intention this short will allow others to do the same.- DaVida Chanel
