I know you by heart

A bittersweet and heartfelt love story set against the backdrop of three generations of an Italian family in a small Southern California farming town from the 1970s to the present. 

There are two men in Jenny’s life—Billy, her first love, and Henry, her closest friend and confidante since childhood. Through the lens of these lifelong relationships, I Know You By Heart looks at the innocence and heartache of first love; the confusion and sadness of a cherished friendship slipping away; the way we are all shaped by the places we come from; and the fierce desire to make a family when your own family has failed.

Past and present are intertwined, as we experience Jenny’s quest to leave behind her painful childhood, to come to terms with the impact of long-held family secrets, and to find the love and courage it takes to forgive.
