what's it all about?

Two ex-lovers (Kier Charles and Elizabeth Healey) experience a turbulent reconnection when they have a chance encounter years later on the Southbank.

tell me more (don't worry, no spoilers)

What would you do if you ran into an old flame? That’s the question posed by Across The River, Warren B. Malone’s charming, meditative and moving soiree through London.

Carving sand sculptures on Southbank in a bid to make some money, Ryan (Kier Charles) suddenly spots Emma (Elizabeth Healey). Now a businesswoman with a family, she’s uninterested in engaging, clearly still angry about the circumstances of their break up several years before. But when a transport strike leaves them stranded, they find themselves walking across London together.

Inevitably revisiting the past, their sojourn through the city is an opportunity to reconnect, to forgive, to heal, and to understand one another anew. A heartfelt human story about long-lasting human connection and the power of the past, with a wonderful feel for the streets of London. A genuine treat.
