1. Logline: It's 1994 and there's no Internet. So 14-year-old Jack Hoffman sets off on a quest to find and retrieve a stash of gay porn from across town before anyone finds out.

    SPECIAL NOTE: If you like the film, PLEASE put something in the TIP JAR (BELOW) - $1, $5, or more. All the money raised will go towards developing the feature version of Jackpot, which was workshopped at the Outfest Screenwriting Lab in 2010!
