Over the course of 23 dog walks across the four dynamically changing seasons of north London, two senior singletons and their personable pooches—Dave and his German Shepherd, Tilly; Fern and her Yorkshire Terrier, Henry—slowly evolve from strangers to sweethearts. A rocky first encounter where the two dedicated dog walkers quibble over leash etiquette eventually leads to gentler run-ins along their favorite nature paths. When happenstance shifts to deliberate meetings, Dave and Fern’s conversations get deeper just as their walks extend longer. As the prospect of romance blossoms in front of them, can Dave, Fern, Tilly, and Henry start a life together as one, or will carefully guarded secrets prevent this union from forming? The palpable chemistry and effortless charm generated by Dave Johns (I, Daniel Blake, MVFF39) and Alison Steadman (Life Is Sweet, MVFF14) fill every frame of this heartwarming, emotionally resonant love story from Oscar®-nominated director Paul Morrison (Solomon & Gaenor, MVFF22).
