The evening takes an unexpected turn when their interaction with the Dancer reveals more than mere erotic intentions, testing the couple's relationship and exposing the emotional scars of everyone involved. "Anniversary" explores the question, "What if a fantasy realized ends up revealing a life not fully lived?".

But as their allotted time together ticks away, the fantasy takes a back seat to the reality of who these people really are... and the cost of living a lie. Written by Producers
