Produced and directed by Sikemi Williams, "Cliché" is a short film that tries to depict everything cliché that happens in a relationship in 11 minutes, 10 seconds.

While it doesn't completely depict everything that happens in a relationship, it, however, focuses on the "what goes around comes around" common belief and the "all men cheat" platitude. More interestingly, it doesn't make the cheating part a gender thing.

"Cliche" is a short film that follows John Smith and Elizabeth Adams who meet in a very 'cliche' setting. They kick off a relationship, and from long distance to everything that happens in a typical relationship, they overcome and are making plans to get married.

They are the "perfect couple" who seem to be so much in love, except for the fact that everything isn't what it seems to be.
