Story: Four lovers collide into each others’ lives as one marriage morphs into several intertwining affairs. Sofia tries to leave her romantic failures behind by embarking on a new relationship with Kofi, who she meets in a chance encounter. Kofi, however, has other things on his mind; namely his crumbling marriage to his wife, Billie. Unfortunately for him, Billie finds herself struggling with a new-found attraction for her female co-worker, Alex.
Secrets and lies surface as lovers change hearts, and layer after layer of a love quadrangle slowly peels away. Moments that seemed true are revisited, turning them upside down and revealing that when stories intersect, the truth lies somewhere in the middle; orbited by four characters learning to cope with the ripple effects of love, obsession, sexuality and ultimately self-discovery.
SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE was born out of a year long improvisational process in which the actors and director mutually crafted an ensemble drama. Structured like a jigsaw puzzle, no character fully grasps their current dilemma as interwoven stories are retold from varying viewpoints. Source: sitmfilm.com, official site.
