About Saving Throw

Five men reunite as adults to complete a Dungeons & Dragons campaign they began in their teens. Their rivalries, disappointments, obligations and frustrations boil over into a battle to define success. And one of them is lost on their way to the game, with bad cell reception. 

A comedy about friendship and the complexity of finishing things.

SAVING THROW is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
