THE TEST by Loris Simoon Salum

SYNOPSIS:

Everyone likes to think they are doing the right thing. We all like to believe we do what is best in difficult situations. This screenplay is about a woman, Melissa, who makes a choice she believes is right for her relationship with Gerard. Even though it is a decision which society has shunned into a negative light, it is one of many examples of how we continue to repeat our ourselves throughout time.
