Directed by Craig Ross Jr, featuring Caryn Ward-Ross, THE AFFAIR  is a film about infidelity and how far two people (married to others) will go to heal the devastation and pain that happens once it’s been tarnished through deception and lies. A cinema verite expérience shot solely on the IPhone 5 with only existing light and simultaneously filmed among the public as unconventional background actors has been funded and now a go for production!
