Gillian is stuck in a humdrum marriage and is at a loss on how to fix it. Her husband regularly ditches her for weekend adventures participating in Live Action Role-Play, otherwise known as Larp.
With tensions running high, Gillian seeks professional advice. She is surprised when her therapist encourages her to try larp. -Who knows? It may make you smile. It may make you laugh. It may even improve your sex life. How terrible could it be?-
Gillian is skeptical, yet decides to give it a go. If larp doesn't work a marital miracle, Gillian can walk away knowing she tried everything before giving up on her dysfunctional marriage.
