Play the Devil

Thu 28 September 2017

Greg is a studious 18-year-old from a working-class Trinidadian neighbourhood. He dreams of attending university thanks to a scholarship but his plans are put at risk by James, a wealthy married man who becomes sexually obsessed with him. When Greg pushes back against James, is it because he’s not interested or because he’s unable to come to terms with his own sexuality? As Greg’s hopes for the future begin to slip away, the older man offers to bankroll him to help him pursue his career. Can Greg stay true to his own desires or will he sacrifice them for the sake of his long-term ambitions?
