A Documentary about love and happiness. The film follows a couple and their everyday life together. Filmed below the waistline along with the sound of their poems is an experimental way to see if the audience can understand characters without seeing their faces…

"Delightful and imaginatively shot"
Mick Jackson (Director of L.A. Story, Volcano and The Bodyguard)
"Natasha Hawthornwaite’s touching film is commendably brave and honest and quite unafraid of seeming sentimental – for which I would applaud it. It’s a really neat idea to hear the affirmations of love spoken over shots of everyday house-keeping activities As we listen to the couple’s voices, we come to know them and appreciate their relationship, even though we don’t see their faces until the last minute."
Sally Lisk-Lewis (BBC Developer)
"What a delightful film. Made me feel strangely proud - and grateful for the happiness that exist between two people. It's not easy to show that kind of contentment on screen but you did it in a very charming, heartful way, beautifully observed."
Christopher Morris (Lecturer at Newport Film School & BBC Producer & Director)
"This was a perfect short film that did not outstay it's welcome - it delivered a simple idea and was flooded with warmth, humour and love."
