Short Film: EVERY LIMERENCE HELPS, 9min., Ireland, Comedy

Limerence (def.): the state of being obsessively infatuated with someone, usually accompanied by delusions of or a desire for an intense romantic relationship with that person.

Lauren is a lustful young woman, living alone during the pandemic. She falls for the man who has become her only social interaction throughout lockdown; the grocery delivery driver. To get closer to him, Lauren excessively places orders and spends her days prepping for these visits. Shaving foam and sexy underwear. Lipstick and libido.
Yet when the delivery man (Lauren’s idea of Tesco’s Finest) is replaced by a colleague, Lauren must break free from her four walls and pursue her love interest.

‘Every Limerence Helps’ is a comedy-drama set in Dublin that deals with loneliness and isolation. A story of desperate desire, this is Girl meets boy, Girl meets nobody else for months, Girl falls in love.
