The Way It's Played

Written and directed by Shripriya Mahesh

The card game is the highlight of the week for Georgia, Marilyn, Norma and Ruth. More than a social gathering, it’s an exclusive refuge where they are on top of their game. The Way It’s Played explores what happens when a highly-functional member of the group starts to falter.
