About

Love Eternal follows the story of Ian Harding who is left all alone in the world at the age of 26 when his mother dies. Unable to understand basic human emotions, he takes the decision to end it all in a snowy forest clearing but through a bizarre chance encounter, he discovers the lifeless body of a schoolgirl. Something about her, and her suicide note, resonates deeply within him, and Ian decides to bring her body home. He sleeps peacefully by her side and for the first time his eyes are opened to the possibility of love and a reason to live. He buries her body under a cherry blossom tree at the end of his garden. Searching for an opportunity to experience the same emotions, Ian manipulates an encounter with Tina, a young suicidal housewife, whom he meets over the internet. Ian finds peace in her lifeless company and discovers a burgeoning understanding of the complexities of love. He slowly begins to engage with the outside world, until once again he is forced to bury her body deep below the cherry blossom tree. Ian then meets Naomi, a beautiful young woman whose son’s life was taken in a car crash…
