The Long Ride (12A)

Running Time: 7 minutes approx

Zack is a struggling actor with too much talent and not enough luck. After a day of disappointments, he just wants to sit down and unwind. On the phone with his husband Aidan, he vents while looking for a seat in the train. But as expected, Zack ends up standing with the rest of the rush-hour crowd.

Well, screw that. To guilt-trip the other passengers into giving him a seat, Zack fakes a break-up on the phone. Nothing is off-limits, anger, sorrow, tears and begging… After all, it’s not hard for a young actor to fake a mental breakdown.
