Dear Leo follows the story of Annie Duncan as told through letters to her pen pal, her younger cousin, Leo.

Annie Duncan is at a precarious time in her life, having graduated from high school and about to embark on her freshman year at college. Annie struggles to find her footing as old friendships become strained and new friendships present opportunities to be more than just friends… maybe. Who can tell, really? When family tragedy strikes, Annie must find the courage to face her problems and do what every college freshman must learn to do: grow up.

Leading a crew who are all under the age of 25, director Emma Rappold and co-writer/star Jill Young have burst onto the scene with their charming debut, proving that the future of queer cinema is in good hands.
