This is Not a Love Song

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Spike and Heaton are the unlikeliest pair. Taciturn, competent, unreadable, Heaton is someone we are instinctively afraid of. In contrast, his side-kick Spike is manic, child-like, unstoppable: someone we are instinctively afraid for. But when Spike commits a terrible crime, Heaton stands by him. There begins a chase across a vast Northern landscape of moors, rivers and dark woods, the increasingly exhausted fugitives being hunted not by the police but by a posse of farmers intent on revenge. No ordinary chase film, This is Not a Love Song is a love story trapped inside the body of a thriller.
