Winner of the prestigious Quarter-Finals Prize at The Writers Network 14th Annual Screenplay & Fiction Competition, Randolph Camp's 'WET MATCHES' is a contemporary, triumph-over-tragedy story that asks the question, "How far would you go for a friend?" If you've ever been ridiculed, bullied, mocked or if ever someone made you feel like you was no good or worthless then this is a story for you. Could you still laugh knowing that death was lurking possibly around the corner? Meet five very colorful teens (all HIV positive) who will inspire you to live and enjoy each and every moment of your life. People called them worthless...about as good as wet matches but Jalan, Crystal and Jack thought otherwise.
