In the lonely expanses of the North American mountains, Faye (Dale Dickey) spends restful days in a trailer: she fishes for lobster, listens to country music from her old transistor radio, reads, watches birds and the stars - and waits for her childhood sweetheart Lito (Wes Studi). Both are widowed and, united in love and pain, want to spend a night at the lake ... A LOVE SONG is a quiet, laconic film with humour and wistfulness about love and life in a grandiose landscape. The director says he wanted to "pay tribute to gentle eccentrics". After successes at Sundance and the Berlinale, now to be experienced at BIFF. A "quiet soul-stirrer" (Hollywood Reporter).

Director's Biography:Max Walker-Silverman, who grew up in the picturesque southwest of Colorado, studied film in New York. Now he lives back in his homeland. Like his short films, his feature film debut A LOVE SONG shows the beauty of the American West.
