Games People Play

A comedy about the the tragedy of being forever young. An old group of friends gathers to celebrate Mitzi’s surprise birthday party over a nostalgic weekend at an idyllic seaside villa – just like they used to do as teenagers. Familiar surroundings and the old rituals get to the core of the group and make them forget their adulthood. Revelations, not meant to harm the balance, make them reassess their past as well as their present. The combination of edgy characters, painfully raw humor with heart and an element of danger makes Games People Play an odd mixture of darkness and light – heart-warming satire if you wish.
