Directed by Michelle Lopez-Rios

Featuring James Tasse &Jenny Wanasek

Dan seeks to heal his aching heart, with only his faithful dog Chapatti for companionship. Betty spends her days with a litter or two of kittens and an aging employer to nurse. For both, romance is a distant memory - until a chance encounter brings these two lonely Irish hearts together for one more adventure.

Gracefully alternating between humorous Irish storytelling and soul-bearing dialogue, Christian O'Reilly tells a poignant, gentle tale about rediscovering the importance of human connection.
