WHAT IF IT WORKS?

LATEST REVIEWS
'WHAT IF IT WORKS?' TRAILER
Adrian, an irrepressibly chirpy tech nerd, suffers from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Grace, a beautiful street artist, suffers from Dissociative Identity Disorder (aka Multiple Personality Disorder).

In their own way, each is trapped. As new neighbours, in an edgy, graffitied suburb of Melbourne, they find themselves in therapy with the same psychiatrist and crash into each other one afternoon.

Grace has a promiscuous "alter" who engages in damaging sex - and that is the extent of her physical experience. Adrian had a high school girlfriend a decade earlier, whom he never got over, and that is the extent of his physical experience. And as if that’s not enough, Adrian’s ex, Melinda re-enters Adrian’s life, only to cause more confusion.

As Adrian becomes aware of a threat to Grace lurking in the form of a fellow street artist named ‘Sledgehammer’, he knows he should help Grace.

But he struggles to break free of his OCD in order to do so. Will he overcome his biggest fear? Will he sacrifice the object he loves most? What if Adrian forgot his illness for a spilt second because of his love for Grace?
