It’s the emotionally resonant tale of first loves reunited by accident as both, thwarted by the challenges of a public transportation strike, seek to get home on a busy London afternoon - but to opposite sides of the river. As they reminisce, laugh and cry, the reality of their current lives pulls them apart, but the memory of what they had - and could have had - tempts them. Produced by London-based Penguins with Freckles, ACROSS THE RIVER stars Elizabeth Healey as Emma and Keir Charles as Ryan and is directed and co-written by Warren B. Malone.

Emma has it all. She's a successful lawyer with a loving husband, two wonderful children and a beautiful home. Ryan is trying to build an elephant out of sand on the beach. He was her first love; it ended badly many years ago and they haven't seen each other since... It's awkward at first but they have one thing in common. A strike has paralyzed public transport and they need to get to their homes: quite close, but on opposite sides of the river. On their way they reminisce, argue, cry and laugh. They can never recapture what they had, but the memory of it tempts them.
