A lyrical and musical story told using poetry and beatboxing.
Her & Her have been seeing each other for a few months now, and are both very much in love. They have recently moved into Her small, one-bedroom flat and, of course, she has brought the dog! Suddenly Her home is their home, and the realities of their differences come into full view. Backgrounds, cultures, upbringings, rules... all different. And one uses poetry, the other music, to tell their stories.
Follow their journey to see how differences can complement each other, the challenges they need to overcome, and how honest conversation and carefree dancing win in the end every time.
