Philadelphia – September 2019
A My Name Is Allison is a story about revenge. It centers around three friends who get together every week for game night. This night, nerdy and demure Julian invites a girl he met on a dating app over, and that’s when disaster ensues. Friendships will be tested, lives will be at stake, and sock puppets will be… there.
