SIDE PIECE explores the history, psychology and latest obsession with outside lovers and those who love them. It is estimated that 30-60% of all married individuals in the U.S. will engage in infidelity at some point during their marriage. The documentary discusses the proliferation of infidelity scandals with public figures in sports, politics and entertainment, as well as on popular TV shows like Scandal.

Side chicks are becoming wives and the institution of marriage is slowly crumbling. Is there a science behind the challenges of monogamy?
Is fidelity no longer an option?
