This cynical romantic comedy takes place within the confines of a clinical drug trial. Tristan and Connie meet while undergoing the anti-depressant trial and become quick friends and then more. The question is: how can they know if they’re feelings are real or simply a side-effect of their treatment. The Effect asks us to examine our relationships to the world, each other, and ourselves.
