Box Office:

1h 30m

Two oddball acquaintances meet once a month to play ping-pong in the back room of a rundown sports bar. Chip, a passionate part-time music teacher, and Gus, a quick-witted philosophy professor, use ping pong as an escape.

But on this night, things are different: tensions fly, suppressed emotions explode, and deeply harbored secrets come to light. Mesmerizing, witty, and downright brilliant, the award-winning ChipandGus spotlights the volleys of friendship and life.
