Zerophilia is a fantastical romantic comedy film directed by Martin Curland that follows inexperienced Luke (Taylor Handley), a young man struggling with his sexuality, as his ever-apparent hormones start to surge. After experiencing his first time with an unknown woman in a van (Kelly LeBrock), Luke begins to flutter in between the genders but not quite making the final jump into becoming a female. With his best friend Keenan's (Dustin Seavey) contact, he finds out from Dr. Sydney Catchadourian (Gina Bellman) that he has a condition known as zerophilia. It seems there are a few in the world with an extra Z chromosome that allows people to switch between genders whenever they become sexually aroused. Sex is confusing enough to deal with but it's even worse when you don't know which gender you'll become in the process. Luke and his female equivalent Luca copes with his new disorder while trying to come to terms with his growing attraction to a pretty girl named Michelle (Rebecca Mozo) as well as her cousin Max (Kyle Schmid).

    Plays like a throwback to such transformative adolescent anxiety romps as "Teen Wolf" and "Just One of the Guys," this time aiming at a slightly less innocent crowd.
