The Mongoose and the Cobra


Maggie and Ram have resumed their long-term affair, meeting in the by-the-hour hotel room where their entire relationship has played out. Maggie (mid 40s) is a white woman who has worked her way up to middle management; Ram (30) is a working class Indo-Guyanese man. They are married—to other people—and have entangled themselves in an intense love affair that can neither move forward nor fizzle out. But they keep trying to make it real or make a break.
