The Games Women Use
When does female friendship and support become akin to aiding and abetting? Does a criminal act exist if others are unaware it has been committed?
Four young women meet at the start of their adult lives and become lifelong friends. They face commonplace challenges recognised by women across the civilised world; issues of loyalty, relationships, trust, ageing and eventually loss. Or is it, in fact, gain?
Set against the swirling activities in four Olympic Games' host cities (Vancouver, London, Sochi and Tokyo) and culminating in Beijing during the 2022 winter games, the four friends regularly get together to share their individual experiences, achievements, failures, goals and setbacks. What they rarely discuss are the events that led to the deaths of those once closest to them. The cities hosting the Games provide the place, time and distraction for elite athletes to be celebrated, records to be broken, medals to be awarded and maybe for crimes to be hidden?
