Synopsis
Cowboy Ricky, 62, and Gretchen, 55, have been dating since 2008.
Marked by injuries from the past, their relationship is an emotional roller coaster ride between dependence and love.
Nevertheless, Ricky and Gretchen try to grow old together as they can not master the harsh everyday life in North Philadelphia without each other.
The intimate documentary takes the viewer on a wild emotional ride from personal resentment to deep love, from tender moments to total rage and forces to think about ones own relationships, triggers and emotions.
