Synopsis:

An encounter between a white, gay playwright and his black, straight “shirtless maid” goes disastrously wrong when signals are misinterpreted, lines crossed. HANDJOB explores the aftermath of their meeting, as it reveals deep layers of discrimination, discord, and discontent among people who should be on the same side.
