Both lonely and disillusioned for different reasons, Ali and Ava meet through their shared affection for an unlikely thing: country music. Ali finds comfort in Ava's warmth and kindness, and Ava finds Ali's complexity and humour irresistible. Over a lunar month, sparks fly and a deep connection begins to grow. However, the legacy of Ava's past relationship and Ali's broken marriage begin to overshadow their newfound passion. First presented at 2021 Cannes Film Festival in the Directors Fortnight section, Ali & Ava is a compelling contemporary love story enveloped in music and imbued with humour, with a soundtrack featuring Dylan, Daniel Avery, Irish folk, and Sylvan Esso tunes.
