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.
Contains sexual and violent situations.
