Dragonflies at Night

More Than A Love Story

Proof that a mother’s love
is with us through it all…

Meet Savannah, the thirty-something owner of Life Celebrations, a party planning business. Despite losing both parents as a teenager, Savannah is creating a positive life for herself, surrounded by friends and co-workers who are now her family. But she also has a secret—as much as she wants to settle down and have children, she is afraid of getting sick too, and having to leave them without their mother, as she herself was left behind years ago.

Her mother is Deirdre Rose. She continues to watch over Savannah, who feels deeply connected to her mother whenever a dragonfly crosses her path.

Now meet Ben, a good-looking, talented recording artist who is already a household name. Yeah, he’s famous, but he’s also painfully lonely. He trusts few people because it seems everyone wants something from him instead of getting to know who he really is.

As fate would have it, Savannah and Ben cross paths at a yoga retreat in the Massachusetts Berkshires.

They are drawn to each other’s creativity and outlook on life.

She sees beyond his celebrity and he admires her strength in what she’s had to overcome.

What happens when the retreat ends and they’re forced to go their separate ways?

Will they be able to make a long distance relationship work?

Can Savannah put aside her fears, and will Ben allow himself to be truly vulnerable?

Above all . . . what message do Deirdre Rose and Dragonflies have for both of them?
