The Production

Romance is a distant memory for two lonely animal-lovers living in Dublin. When forlorn Dan and his dog Chapatti cross paths with the amiable Betty and her nineteen cats, an unexpected spark is ignited. Thus begins a warm and gentle journey of two people re-discovering the importance of human companionship.
