Magic Gum is a peek at one seemingly miserable day in the life of Marvin (Chad Beckim), a Connecticut preppie in Manhattan. His imperfect memory has made him forget his girlfriend's birthday, and consequently, she dumps him. To vent his frustration, he goes out to shoot some hoops. Well, he's a terrible ball player with no skills. Angelina (Romi Dias), a gorgeous and sympathetic "guardian angel" appears to give him a chance to improve his game and revamp his self-image as a loser. Angelina's bubblegum is the key, so Marvin takes it from her and chews. Enter Number One (Corey Reynolds), Cristal (Michael Bentt), and The Lord (Daryus Jackson): they pick him as a fourth in their two-on-two, simply because he's, well, there. The ensuing game is aggressive and furious, with Marvin maximizing the spell of Angelina, playing like a pro, and winning the game against Cristal and the Lord. Yet, the effect is short-lived - he forgets Angelina's name when Number One asks, so she disappears and takes Marvin's basketball talent with her.  Less
