Set in the 1970s, Travis Fine’s Any Day Now explores the unique struggles of a gay couple as they fight both prejudice and the law for custody of a neglected and abandoned son of a junkie neighbor. Drag performer Rudy and district attorney Paul have only just met, yet are confident in their love for one another as well as their love and ability to care for Marco, a 14-year old boy with Down Syndrome who faces a future of foster care after his mother’s arrest. Despite Marco’s happiness, the new family is ripped apart when authorities find the two gay men as unfit caretakers for the abused teen.
Any Day Now follows the intimate development of not just Rudy and Paul’s relationship with one another but the development of their love for a son that is being torn from their grasp. –Chandra L. Knotts
In the midst of a successful acting, writing and directing career, Travis Fine abruptly left the entertainment business in 2001.

While Travis was in the flight deck of a commercial airliner on autopilot at 36,000 feet, he developed the story of a hardened flight attendant and an unaccompanied minor who connect amidst the chaos of September 11 into his screenplay The Space Between. Starring Academy Award winning actress Melissa Leo, The Space Between had it’s world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival and aired on the USA Network on the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
