Three of Hearts | 2005
Trinogomous? Marriage-a-trois? Monogamy, but with more than one person? How does one talk about the unusual relationship between Sam, Samantha and Steven? In his early twenties, Sam Cagnina, the oldest son of a mafia hit man, meets Steven, a handsome 19-year-old college student and they fall in love. Soon Sam, with charisma and energy to spare, gets an idea. "Hey, wouldn't it be great to bring a woman into the relationship!?" Steven, being an easygoing guy, agrees. They spend the next seven years dating and looking for a woman they could both fall in love with, who would agree to live in a "trio" relationship. Finally, they know they've found that special someone else when they meet Samantha, a Toronto ex-pat, struggling as an actress in New York City. Sam meets Samantha, and they fall in love. Samantha meets Steven and they fall in love too. The "trio," as they are affectionately called, begin their journey. Nine years later, Sam, Samantha and Steven are going to have a baby; regarding the baby only one thing seems certain: he/she will have an "S" name. This unique union is explored further as they negotiate their living arrangements, have children and open one of the hottest wellness centers in New York.
