ARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Told from two separate journal entries, “Our Brief Hours of Play” follows two teens from polar opposite spectrums of life who meet during an unfortunate circumstance that bridges into a strong friendship that will be tested throughout its entirety from middle school through adulthood.
During the summer heading into high school, a sheltered upper-middle-class jock named Mark saves a girl named Misha from drowning in a pool. He offers her swimming lessons. Misha is mysterious and her unique view on life builds Mark’s attraction to her.
Mark and Misha form a strong bond over the summer, but their time quickly comes to a close as the two are off to separate high schools across town from each other. Even with the distance, the two remain close. Until one day, Misha disappears.
