Written, Produced & Directed by Sal Bardo. Nicolas (Christopher Schram) struggles to decide whether to go to the wedding of his best friend from high school, Aaron (Matthew Watson), who he's always been quietly in love with. The two had a falling out years earlier after Nicolas inexplicably kissed Aaron's girlfriend. Nicolas clings to an idealized image of his former friend, subconsciously sabotaging his own happiness in the process. Requited is a realistic slice-of-life that poses the question "How do you get over something you never had?" The 19-minute short was shot in New York City and Lambertville, NJ, and also stars Max Rhyser, Crystal Arnette and Sal Bardo.
