HASARD | SHORT FILM
Losing a bet to older friends, eight year-old Eloy steals a coin from an antiquities store. From that day forward he flips the coin whenever faced with a decision, basing his choices on heads or tails. As time goes by he relies more heavily on various forms of prognostication and augury to struggle through life.
As a young man, he follows his secret love, the shopkeeper’s granddaughter, Soleil. Relying on divination again, he constructs a letter for her with messages received in fortune cookies he orders ritualistically every morning with his coffee. Eloy finds himself facing an emotional decision which he once again leaves up to the toss of a coin, and this time it may finally expose him to the uncertainty of life and love.
