BIdentity Crisis (2011)

Helen longs to be the trendy "Sex in the City" girl, where she can have her party and dance at it too. She is looking for love but she is looking in all the wrong places. Phillip, a good looking sensitive party boy, is just the right amount of Carrie Bradshaw excitement she needs.  Helen's affection for Phillip comes to a stop in a comedic explosion at a coffee house.True, Phillip is a party boy, but he likes to party with the boys. The thing is, Phillip is bisexual but says his light switch is on women. Helen wants to be trendy but is uncomfortable. These two put a new stamp on "Be careful what you wish for, ya just might get it." With the help of Jaime, a flamboyant waiter, BIdentity is a NY drama with a just the right twist. "BIdentity Crisis" tells a story of coming out of the closet...sort of.
