Synopsis

A visceral, darkly humorous chronicle of the transformative power of love, and the improbable roads that lead to redemption.

Thirty-year-old Keith Kavanagh (Joel Thomas Hynes) ekes his way through life in a small town. A hard-drinking hooligan, he keeps his ragged collection of poetry a closely guarded secret... as secret as his regret for the shattered relationship with his father. When Keith meets the darkly exotic Natasha (Mylène Savoie), his life is changed forever.

Scary, sexy, and funny - and sometimes all three at once - Down to the Dirt is a raw and poignant adaptation of the internationally acclaimed novel.

Canadian Connection: Filmed in Newfoundland and Halifax.
