Synopsis: Ryan and Taya have a happy and loving marriage. When they go on a routine staycation, Ryan instantly connects with a man at the hotel pool. Conflicted by this attraction, Ryan explores a part of himself that he has long suppressed. This encounter opens up the chance for a whole new level of honesty between Ryan and Taya, if they are willing to explore bisexuality and an open relationship. 

MORE THAN HE KNOWS examines the complexity of human connections; our self-awareness, awareness of others, the spectrum of sexuality, and models of marriage.
