My Favourite Place
In turmoil since the day she left him, Alex is forced to confront the past and say goodbye to the love of his life.
My Favourite Place is a story of how painful it is to say goodbye to your first love. A year since their separation, we watch Alex and Sally reunite in their favourite place. The laughter and chemistry is still there, but the pain and betrayal is quick to come to the surface as they battle to make sense of what happened. A heartbreaking story of love and loss with childhood sweethearts struggling to come to terms with a life apart. The tragic story unfolds as these soulmates say goodbye for the last time.
