Joan (Lesley Manville) and Tom (Liam Neeson) are happily retired in Belfast. There is an ease to their relationship and a depth of love which expresses itself through tenderness and humour in equal parts. When Joan is unexpectedly diagnosed with breast cancer, the course of her treatment shines a light on their relationship as they are faced with the challenges that lie ahead and the prospect of what might happen. Refreshingly honest in its observations of both the hardships and everydayness of living with cancer, Ordinary Love is an intimate tale of devotion weathering a storm.
