This Is How It Goes

This Is How It GoesT2127702781
This Is How It Goes is about a young man who moves in with married couple Cody and Belinda Phipps, both of whom were in his class at school. Cody was the high school jock and the only black guy in the school; Belinda was the high school cheerleader. The new housemate's presence in the couple's seemingly stable family life exposes deep uncomfortable truths about all three of them. These truths are questionable however, as the story is being told through the eyes of the young man. As the events unfold and scenes are played out differently, we see both the perversion of the truth and the narrator's mind.
