Is there such a thing as privacy in the matters of love? How much must one know about the other's emotional state in order to feel safe? Is trust built by means of action or feeling? A couple challenges the limits of privacy and the power of influence in their relationship by accepting their roles in a game that proves not so destructive as it appears. In fact, it's quite the opposite. Based on a story by American writer David Plante, and set in Brazil, Center of Gravity deals with universal questions about love and our expectations toward the beloved, the thin line that simultaneously divides and unites one another.
