Running time: 91 minutes

Available Format: DVD

Acquitted of a crime, Sean is a young man trying to rebuild his life.  Pam is an ex-cop turning Petting Zoo and Adventure Park owner.  She believes that’s Sean’s a murderer and will therefore do anything to prove his guilt.

Five years on from the crime, Sean starts where any millennial would – with online dating.  He meets Casey, a quirky young woman who believes in his innocence.  Together they push the limits of love after murder, but with every step forward Pam is trying to pull them back – well, after feeding the Alpacas.

The Town is a touchingly twisted comedy about finding love when your world is against you.
