Synopsis

A poignant split-time comedy drama, Forward charts the tragic end and the hopeful beginnings of a young man's relationships.

A young woman, Emma, loses control of a bike in a quiet London street. A young man, Sam, an American alone and isolated in London, mourns the recent death of his girlfriend. Scenes of Sam's loneliness and isolation are intercut with happy scenes of him and Emma together. But these supposed flash backs are actually flash forwards, and we are seeing Sam's future, not his past. The film ends with Emma's bicycle crash again, but this time revealing it to be the moment that she and Sam meet.
