What If It Works?

Schedule

Adrian (Luke Ford), an irrepressibly chirpy tech nerd, suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder. Grace (Anna Samson), a beautiful street artist, suffers from dissociative identity disorder (aka multiple personalities). As new neighbors in an edgy, graffitied suburb of Melbourne, they find themselves in therapy with the same psychiatrist, and after crashing into each other one evening at their caregiver’s office, the pair find themselves mutually attracted. Soon after, however, Adrian’s ex (Brooke Satchwell) turns up, creating romantic intrigue. Further complications arrive when Adrian becomes aware of a threat to Grace in the form of fellow street artist “Sledgehammer” (Wade Briggs). Although he wants to help, Adrian struggles to break free of his OCD. Can he momentarily overcome his illness because of his love for Grace? It seems impossible. But what if it works?
