Grandad was a Romantic


A child documents the love life of her grandad – a man who has a reputation for being a passionate romantic. 

She tells the story of how her grandad came across a picture of her granny for the first time, and decided in that moment that she must be the love of his life. He marries her and they start a family together, but grandad’s boundless romance never dies. It will take him in unforeseen directions.
