The multiple festival award-winning debut feature from Justin John Doherty
and Neil Fox is an intimate and honest portrayal of a couple experiencing
the first flush of love and all the thrilling passion, and unnerving
insecurities that entails.
John (James Barnes) is a touring jazz musician who meets Alice (Katharine
Davenport) after a gig. A passionate one-night stand quickly develops into
a full-blown love affair with the pair declaring their utter devotion to
each other and contemplating a possible future together.
The perfect couple leave the city for a perfect romantic getaway in
Cornwall. However, over the course of the weekend, they come into contact
with strangers and friends and the bubble threatens to burst as they
discover the vulnerabilities, flaws and manipulations that were previously
masked by the blissful waves of new love.
The soundtrack is rich with contemporary jazz and the rhythm and motifs of
the music find their way into the film’s visuals and dialogue as John and
Alice go from infatuation, through misunderstandings towards perhaps
something more real.
