It’s 1985 in The Territory and it always will be.
It’s so cold you can’t feel your feet and from here the outside world is just a dream, but two humans and one animal will show us the way. They’re each searching for someone, a woman who washed up on the shores of this far-flung town and then disappeared. To find her they will have to look deep into the darkness that lies at the edge of love.
Heartbreaker is an astounding feat of imagination with its own riotous rhythm and the resounding message that humanity can be found in the wildest of places.
