In 2015, Ryan directed this short dark and twisted tale written by Charlie Fish as his entry for HBO's Project Greenlight. An husband unhappy in his marriage, plays a heated game of Scrabble with his wife. When the words on the board come to fruition, the husband tries to command fate and utilize this uncanny coincidence to his vindictive advantage.

The short film went on to become a Top 200 Contender in the competition, out of 12,000 entries. It screened at festivals in New York City and Nevada.
