The Games We Play

Directed By: Annika Marks, Rich Newey | Runtime: 10 min | Plays In Short Block: Drama Romance 1

Paul is a chronically single romantic. But now, in his mid-30s he has met Molly, and after 2 ½ weeks of dating (well, almost, the day after tomorrow) he is madly in love. When Paul brings Molly to meet his friends, they end up playing an innocent game of “What If”. The question they ask each other is — what if aliens came to earth and asked for volunteers to go with them back to their mother-planet, would you go? The answers each give to this hypothetical question reveal truths about them to each other – and for Paul those truths alter the course of his relationship with Molly. “The Games We Play” is about the red flags we register early on in relationships, and what could happen if we acted on our intuition.
