The interactive documentary entitled, “The And,” asks 30 real couples the daunting question of “what would you do if I cheated on you?” However, being a purely hypothetical question, the couples are more comfortable giving their responses. Thereby the reactions of the participants are surprisingly honest and revealing.
The documentary also features 412 other emotionally provoking questions, however the clip of this segment has been particularly popular. Some of the other questions asked include “Think about your life without me. How do you feel?” And what do you like least about me?” “How do I take you for granted?” As well as other emotionally provoking prompts.
On the official “The And” website, http://www.theand.us/, couples may make personalized videos of their own. The website will ask the couple four questions and then compile a short video based on the responses. The videos are typically 90 seconds long and include a collection of interviews from the 30 couples. There’s an option to pass on questions even though every question must be asked.
The variations in the couple’s approach to this issue such as their follow-up questions and explanations verify how differently people handle relationships.
