A young couple pushes the limits of their open marriage until they catch each other breaking their own rules.
IN SYNC was created for the 2019 Asian American Film Lab 72 Hour Shootout under the theme "Balancing Act." As a frequent participant of 72 hour festivals, I find these events as the best way for a filmmaker to exercise their problem-solving and execution under a ticking clock. However, as a father of twin toddlers, time and sleep are your most precious gifts on top of the trust of your cast and crew who are lending their passions and talents. The pressure to deliver was definitely on. But thanks to a wonderful assembly of personalities and chemistry (that was IN SYNC), teamwork made the dream work. We hope audiences come away with as much pleasure and enjoyment as we did.
