Synopsis: It’s 6 a.m. and things are not going well. Set in an early morning cycling class, Spin follows a group of spinners maintaining, maintaining, maintaining as they undergo immense physiological, social, and romantic change. A psycho-sexual, pop-physical comedy, Spin explores how our heads strive for current socio-sexual mores while our bodies carry ancient impulses for dominance and destruction.
