Alfie is a hopeless romantic. Despite nearing 30, he remains gloriously naïve, a youthful bright spark of a human being. When he meets Effie in a real-life meet cute, he believes they are destined for forever. That’s the way it happens in the movies, right? But Effie, the daughter of the kind of parents who never hold hands, is much more realistic. In a series of nostalgia-soaked memories of their blossoming relationship, we see the world through Alfie’s eyes. Falling in love, moving in together, becoming the kind of comfortable partners that people yearn for. When the cracks start to show, is it reality seeping in? Can we trust what we are seeing? Can Alfie trust his own memories? This is an intimate, visceral exploration of love, relationships and the way we cling to the past in order to ignore our present.
