A New York Pair is an evening in the lives of Molly and Charles. Whilst the couple walks home after a celebratory dinner, we see them try to align their desires as it soon becomes clear they may not want the same thing. Can a relationship survive just because you love someone deeply? Should it?

The Story

Oscar Wilde once said: “The advantage of the emotions is that they lead us astray.” As collaborators we wanted to explore how a couple navigates love and work and how emotions and ambitions guide us in a city as intoxicating and inhospitable 
as New York. Can love ever justify sacrifice? How do our emotions inform and affect our decision making? A New York Pair is an exploration of these questions. Ultimately we hope it makes you think about the choices you have made, right or wrong, and where these choices have taken you. Love? Career? Happiness? Loneliness?
