Burning Bridges, 2017.
A visual artist reaches out to an old friend through Facebook to request a particular "inappropriate" image of the artist's work be taken down. When it is revealed that the friend has been diagnosed with a serious illness, the artist is forced to decide between letting the request go or to continue pressing, friendship and reputation be damned . . . the artist doesn't choose wisely.
