Once called Dancing About Architecture, the title was changed to If They Only Knew before becoming Playing By Heart. The film is sort of in the style of Robert Altman's Nashville wherein multiple players meet for various lengths of time in overlapping dramatic situations.
Everything revolves around their various contorted relationships and the tagline to the film is: If romance is a mystery, there's only one way to figure it out.
