Synopsis

When Hannah asks her boyfriend, Ryan, "If you could live forever, would you?", he is confused. However, Hannah is immortal and has been 23 years old since the year 1954. Ryan finds this hard to believe at first, but love leads him not only to believe her, but to accept her offer to make him immortal like her. Bargaining is a thousand-year drama of love and loss, that uses the supernatural element of immortality to explore themes of devotion and forgiveness.
