Beautiful, intelligent, soulful Essence (Jillian Reeves) is a teacher and spoken word poet. Her open communication and passion for life is shared by Maurice (Lamman Rucker), a handsome and socially conscious teacher at a school for the deaf. Although their relationship is fairly new, they can feel their sexual chemistry growing. The two decide to move to the "next level" when the issue of HIV testing raises a new level of discussion. Will Essence and Maurice be able to sustain their relationship or are they simply on two different pages? Will this fire fizzle or continue to burn? "Let's Talk" explores issues concerning sex, safety and loving ourselves.
