(Hollywood, CA) – November 2nd, 2016. Flirt Films, in collaboration with Byron A. Martin Productions, are proud to announce the wrap of Morning After, a bold and playful LGBTQ drama about sexual fluidity. A film helmed by award-winning director, Patricia Chica, from an original screenplay by Kristian Hodko. Byron A. Martin and Marc Carle act as Executive Producers. Filming took place in Montreal’s Plateau Mont-Royal neighborhood this past summer.
Outstanding Canadian actors Joey Scarpellino (Les Parents) and Jordana Lajoie (Patrice Lemieux 24-7) both join the team as the emancipated Alex and the provocative Dana respectively. The other talented actors are LAMDA-trained Thomas Vallières (the sexually conflicted Michael), Orphan Black’s regular Zoé de Grand Maison (the vivacious Teegan), and Kristian Hodko (Edward, the catalyst).
This playful coming of age drama is a short film that will serve as a “proof of concept” for the feature film project, presently in development.
Morning After tells the story of Michael, whose life-changing journey is provoked one night while playing a new version of spin-the-bottle that involves chocolate tasting and French kissing.
“Morning After is perfectly timed to speak to the Millennial generation and sexual fluidity in our culture. It presents an incredible opportunity to bring understanding to and raise awareness around sexual identity issues in society,” says filmmaker Patricia Chica.

Martin (Ontario); Co-Executive Producers: Jessica Moreno and Lisa Powers (Los Angeles) and Tariq Rahman (Montreal); Line Producer: Kathy Wolf; Associate Producers: Bonni Ellis, Keith Lane, Ben Ragunton, Richard Duquette, and Andrew Wong; Cinematographer: Martin Bouchard; Art Director: Alexandre Piedon; Sound: Bruno Carrière; Special Effects: Cineffects; Costumes: Josée Métivier; Makeup Artists: Steph Miramontes and Larysa Chernienko.

Morning After is not only a film about sexual fluidity and accepting yourself the way you are. It’s also an inspiring tale about human connection, oneness and finding the flow that unites the sensual experience with the truth inside of us.
– Patricia Chica, director
Morning After tells the story of a young man called Michael, who comes back to Montreal
after spending two years abroad. He finds himself at his friend Edward’s flat with his
roommate Dana, her best friend Teegan, and Edward’s “soulmate” Alex. While only
knowing Edward, Michael quickly becomes friendly with the rest of the gang as they get
involved in a provocative game of chocolate tasting and French-kissing.
Michael finds himself confronted by the openness of the group, who seem to comfortably
blur the lines of sexual identity, something Michael has a hard time understanding.
Michael comes face to face with a dilemma he’s had for quite some time; of not only
questioning his own sexuality, but the notion of sexual identity as a whole, and are labels
The answer to all his questions lie in, the Morning After.
