Play It Film


Billy is a shy young Barista with a peculiar affinity for dinosaurs. When a beautiful girl, Genny, enters the coffee shop he works at, Billy becomes infatuated. Upon seeing that Genny is possibly already involved with a man, Billy sits down for a domino match in the metaphorical game of life. Battling against various characters and his own shyness, Billy will try to win Genny's heart in both a metaphoric and real world game in which every tile played holds a crucial consequence in the path to victory.
