Drama series Sinchronicity follows the lives of three twenty somethings, Jase, his best friend Nathan and the girl they both love Fi. Jase though, despite being in a relationship with Fi is having a gay affair with doctor Mani. Nathan meanwhile is in love with Fi and despite a one night stand the two of them don’t want to face up to their feelings.
Very in your face as is the way of so much modern drama. Soundtrack was excellent and there was the germ of a quality series here if only they had toned down some of the extraneous baggage.
