The relationship among Heather Tobin’s films is the presence of leading queers into a direction of awareness, change and total understanding. Director, producer, editor and writer, Tobin seeks to create lead queer roles onscreen. “To Each Her Own,” a 2008 love-drama title named after her company, To Each Her Own Films, is a coming out story about a girl named Jess (Hannah Hogan) who is no longer turned on by her husband Trevor (Shaughnessy Redden), but is still in agreement to have a baby.

Jess and Casey meet while Casey is working a job at Jess’s apartment complex and the two become inseparable, causing Jess to be dishonest to Casey, Trevor and especially herself.
