Chain Reaction Segment

Description:
As part of a chain reaction prompt, where “a team of 5 may construct
teams of films that while individual play combined as a chain
reaction,” a dramatic piece will elaborate on a greater conflict as
one leg of the chain reaction. Touching upon themes of unexpressed
memory and repressed trauma, two childhood friends in their adulthood
relive the events of an accident gone wrong. High quality audio
recording devices will be essential to capturing the conversation in
detail.
