In this simmering, unconventional thriller set in the lush hills of Trinidad, Gregory (Petrice Jones), a sensitive scholar struggling with his sexuality, is pursued by rich, married businessman James (a quietly menacing Gareth Jenkins). Seduction and obsession intertwine with cultural, sexual, and family dynamics in a multilayered story that spirals to a fateful conclusion that challenges moral interpretation. This drama from Bahamian-born, queer writer-director Maria Govan bursts with colorful scenes of the Carnival ritual "the Jab" and uses authentic island locales and music to show precisely what it means to PLAY THE DEVIL.
