MAKEOVER

Synopsis

Lonely widower Horrie misses his wife (and recently departed dog) and decides it’s time to start dating again. He finds the perfect woman via a singles magazine, but before meeting, undertakes an elaborate and unconventional makeover. Can he keep up the façade, or will he be found out? A slightly twisted romantic-comedy.
