THE HUMAN SHOW

Synopsis

Seven strangers are invited to a mysterious event. Dressed for a party they find themselves in a place with no address, no host and — no exits. Connected only by circumstance, this unlikely group of characters can only rely on their intuition as they navigate through a sea of relationships and unexpected happenings. In pursuit of answers they become mourners at a funeral, contestants at a marathon dance, jurors in a courtroom and players in a life-sized game of checkers.

In the end, do we ever find ourselves; or do we tend to lose ourselves in the moment? THE HUMAN SHOW is less of a story than an event. An event that unfolds as one might imagine life passing before ones eyes in a distant yet oddly familiar stream of consciousness.
