Sophie and Paul (an aspiring musician) can’t pay their London rent and turn to friends and family for support.
Over the course of a summer, things go from bad to worse: The couple lose everything and find themselves lost in the underbelly of life on the streets. Though frustrated, their good humour and positivity land them odd jobs and a temporary shelter.
A story of love, hope and survival in the darkest of times.
Love Without Walls is a drama-romance featuring a backdrop of beautiful, original music primarily written and performed by singer/songwriter and lead actor Niall McNamee.
At the time of writing, more than 70,000 households have been made homeless since the pandemic, with numbers continuing to rise at an alarming rate. Whilst this is not a film about Covid-19, it is a film relevant to what we are going through as a society in the aftermath of the pandemic.
Producer Karen Newman said; “We’re thrilled to be premiering Love Without Walls, at MIFF. A brilliant festival that champions independent films from around the world. Manchester is a great home for the film because of the city’s vibrant music and arts scene. We can’t wait to meet the Manchester audience…”
Director, Jane Gull, said “Love Without Walls’ is a combination of all the things I care about. I hope it will entertain whilst also inspiring important conversations.”
Love Without Walls will have its World Premiere at Manchester Film Festival on March 12th
