Passing Game is an exploration of guilt, retribution and disillusionment. Two once promising actors, one white and one black, have descended to doing commercials and voice overs

At a seedy, deserted resort, the two engage in increasingly violent basketball games while they plot to do away with their wives reminders of their failure

Unexplained killings have already occurred in the area and the two men hope the murderer will oblige by making their wives his next rifle fodder. Barring that, they make a pact to dispose of each other's wife

Others inhabiting this sinister locale are a creepy, gun toting caretaker, his nasty nephew and the nephew's former girl friend a natural prey for these two predatory men

Murder does take place, but not the one they've planned
