We Should Talk
Student Entrant 2019
New York University
Things are tense. Your partner's been trying to get you to talk about the problems affecting your relationship, but you're not sure if you're ready. You head to your common haunt, a local bar where your best friend works, to relax and think things through. You discuss ongoing problems about life and romance with your partner over text, while also chatting with friends and strangers at the bar about what's on your mind. The interactions you have and the perspectives you take affect how genuinely you can connect with your partner, and whether your relationship can survive the night.
