Down on their luck and searching for work while they wait for their fiancée visa to go through, Tom, a struggling writer, and Eve, an out-of-work artist, enter THE MILLENNIUM PROJECT, an experiment run by the mysterious Director and Handler. With the promise of $50,000, Tom and Eve agree to live in research facility housing for a month while their relationship is analyzed. Over the course of their stay, Eve slowly starts to go mad as she begins to question if her lover really is the man she thinks he is.
A paranoid sci-fi thriller about the nature of trust in relationships, The Honeymoon Phase is as much classic Twilight Zone as contemporary Black Mirror, and an all-too-terrifying answer to the question How well can you ever really know someone?
“There are questions of trust, identity, spousal abuse, deception, differing expectations, and emotional incompleteness, all contained within a narrative that creates a terrifying – and all too recognizable – world in which men expect the women in their lives to fulfill their emotional needs.”
– Richard Whittaker, Austin Chronicle
