This is a film about recapturing lost love, about following your dreams, about responsibility, modern life and cake.

Director: Warren B. Malone
Length: 75 mins
Location: London
Status: Post Production
Genre: Romantic Drama / Ex-Love Story





Emma has it all as a successful lawyer: Barrister husband, lovely children, great house in Chelsea. Ryan is trying to build an elephant out of sand on the Southbank. He was her first love; it ended badly many years ago and they haven't seen each other since...
It's awkward at first but they have one thing in common. A strike has paralysed public transport and they need to get to their homes: quite close, but on opposite sides of the river.
On their way they reminisce, argue, cry and laugh. They can never recapture what they had, but the memory of it tempts them.
Where now?


The incredibly funny and charming Keir Charles from Love Actually and The Green Wing stars as Ryan.
