Together is a heart-tugging story centred on the issue of elderly abuse.

Phil must fight to prevent his wife of over sixty years from being moved into a nursing home without him.
‘They have to prove they have their S*** Together in order to stay Together.’
The film was produced and directed by Paul Duddridge.
Director Paul Duddridge says: ‘I love a comeback story. The fact that seniors in the USA have discovered this little British movie on DVD is such a wonderful surprise. Maybe the theme is that there is always someone in authority who knows better than you how to live your life and found its audience during the lockdown. I am so proud to be able to re-release this movie in the hope that it continues to find its audience. ‘
