GUEST ROOM follows a young woman with Down Syndrome (GLEE’s Lauren Potter) as she grapples with questions of intimacy, identity, and motherhood after an unplanned pregnancy with her boyfriend. Featuring an original score by Joel P West (SHORT TERM 12), this short film offers a unique and touching glimpse into the complicated depths of a Lauren Potter you’ve never seen before.

Just adding a note–Lauren also worked as one of the Executive Producers on this film so it is really great getting to see her spread her wings both acting wise and behind the scenes. I cannot wait to see this film.

Don’t you blush, manzanita
The cold exposure will free us
Let’s peel our bark off together
And dress our wounds with the feathers
That fall from each other
