Crazy   Lovin'

short film

Synopsis

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? And who knows what secrets a man hides from his wife. In this quirky tragi-comedy a man, Mr. Lovin, tries to keep his friends from bothering his wife. Poor Mr. Lovin has a multiple personality disorder. Though frequent remedies fail, the mad psychiatrist releases his inmate/patient back to his ever lovin' wife's warm embrace. But the friends come home too. To the tragic detriment of Mrs. Lovin. This black and white short film portrays the surreal world of confusion, where love struggles to be heard. The question is whose love is stronger.
