Pen Pals

A Film by Ray Fennelly

Synopsis

Lilly likes to write letters to convicts. That’s how she meets Sean, a prisoner serving time in Ireland. After finding they have a connection, Lilly decided to travel from the US to meet Sean, on the day he’s released from prison. The two hit the road in a crime-ridden romance. P.S. it may not end so well!
