Burned by a cheating boyfriend (and some mild chlamydia), a heartbroken pushover turns to a mysterious Magic 8 Ball for the answers. But as he starts giving into his impulses, he risks his hurt turning into hate—and losing all control.
“‘Magic H8 Ball’ is about the unanswerable questions we ask ourselves after a shock like that. What did I do wrong? Do I love him more than he loves me? Who am I without him? Did he cheat on me because my nipples point different directions?”, states Dan Hass. “Gay heartbreak (like gay relationships) are their own beast, and ‘Magic H8 Ball’ tries to capture with full honesty (and hopefully, hilarity) the 20-something gay experience in 2018. It’s a wild, weird, heartfelt, and refreshingly inappropriate dude-on-dude dramedy—and every ounce of credit belongs to the amazing, hardworking, super attractive, and almost entirely LGBTQ+ cast, crew, and creative team who connected with the film on a level I never even imagined, ran with it, and worked their asses off for months and months to bring this to life”, he adds.
