After breaking up with her enigmatic girlfriend Antonia, 35-year-old English Literature teacher Julia is thrown into a totally unforeseen new life when she moves into an idyllic beachside house with best gay friend Hugo and his friend Lisa. Evenings are spent indulging in wistful heart-to-hearts about the trials and tribulations of loves past and present. But before long, crunch time comes in the shape of Lisa’s beautiful cousin Helena, who encourages Julia to learn to love once again.

A tender, enriching exploration of the passions and pangs one can experience when both deeply in and out of love, So Hard To Forget is a film about falling back in love, and how it really isn’t so different from that ‘first time’.
