REPUBLIC OF LOVE (THE)

The Republic of Love is a warm-hearted love story set in a cold city, a paradox that explores all the issues, dilemmas and barriers facing the lucky and unlucky in love in the 21st century. Fay and Tom live in the same apartment block. They live parallel lives but they have never met, a symptom of life in the modern age. Mutual acquaintances connect them, and one day they meet. This is it – he/she is “the one.” But suddenly, Fay is dealt a devastating blow at the hands of her family, which throws doubt into her mind and causes her to call the whole thing off. Tom is devastated; Fay is miserable at her decision but steadfast. Can they ever reconnect?
