The Broken Circle Breakdown is an intense love story between Elise (Veerle Baetens) and Didier (Johan Heldenbergh). She runs her own tattoo shop and he is a Flemish cowboy playing the banjo in a small band. It’s love at first sight for them…although they are poles apart. Chalk and cheese, completely different and yet perfectly compatible.
When their daughter Maybelle is born, their happiness is complete. Then tragedy strikes and Maybelle dies. Didier loses himself in anger and Elise seeks comfort. It is a story underpinned by bluegrass and raw grief. About how love conquers fate… or not. The film will have its release this autumn.
