Hold Me Tight

Day after day Mallory receives love letters from her husband Isaac, and it'll take more than someone's death to put an end to that.

The topic of human loss and grief is close to everyone because we all deal with it as part of the “human circle of life.” 

Hold Me Tight (2022)

Mallory and Isaac Fridman have been happily married for over 30 years. Isaac works away a lot, and Mallory is almost always by herself. To keep the fire in the relationship alive they agree to communicate through frequent love letters. When a new love letter arrives, Mallory loves to read out the most beautiful parts to her friend, Val.

It could have been an example of a great love story until the day Val sees Mallory in the park, hugging a smart and attentive man, it makes life very complicated. A few days later another letter arrives on Val's doorstep by mistake, and there's something about the handwriting, something familiar, in a way Isaac's could never be.
