Romance is a distant memory for two lonely animal-lovers living in Dublin. When forlorn Dan and his dog Chapatti cross paths with the amiable Betty and her nineteen cats, an unexpected spark begins a warm and gentle story about two people re-discovering the importance of human companionship.
Chapatti is a moving story demonstrating that love and romance can happen again even after many years. This wonderfully charming two-hander is both hopeful and uplifting.
