Danny is a trucker who people call The Beast. Roberta is a troubled young mother with a teenage son that her parents must now raise. A romantic two-hander about two of society’s loneliest rejects who meet in a bar, the action follows Danny and Roberta as they butt heads and egos in the Bronx before discovering through each other that there is a space for love in their lives. A dangerous and messy love, but love nonetheless.
Danny and the Deep Blue Sea touches the unspoken parts of our humanity: the violence, insanity, love and hate that can occur in the space between two people.
