About this submission
I really wanted to create a Rom-Com that subverted expectations of the genre around miscommunication. I hoped to show a couple that had great communication working through events in their lives together - an underrated skill that many in the LGBTQIA+ community develop through our own coming out journey's and getting to a place where we feel comfortable having same-sex/non-heteronormative relationships.
This also allowed me to further explore the theme of relationships in Ireland among different generations.
While hitting dramatic and emotional beats I still wanted to tell a Gay story that could still end with optimism and hope.
