Annie: “I want to take a break.” Stan: “Just tell me his name.” Annie: “Mandy.” Audience: “uh-oh.”
Aaron: “Can we try an open relationship?” Marcus: “OK, what are the rules?” Aaron: “Don’t ever lie to me.” Audience: “uh-oh.”
Four young adults explore the delicate terrain of relationships, monogamy, and the ache of sexual exploration. Options are everywhere and the rules get fuzzy. As their lives converge, the entanglements slowly draw us into the drama of the sweet and crazy that is love. Mixed with a gentle wit of everyday life, filmmaker Rodney Evans (Brother to Brother) peels back the truth of the age-old struggle for identity looped through the needs of another person. –Sunny Hall
The Happy Sad will be preceded by Something Real (Guy Shalem, 2013, USA, 9 min)
Against the backdrop of LA bar life, two young lovers struggle to appreciate what they have… all wrapped up in a catchy musical!
