About Frank and Percy
The ever-so witty and moving story of Frank and Percy explores an unexpected relationship between two men who love the simple things in life - such as a walk in the park with their canine companions. Frank and Percy believe that human connection is far more temperamental than the relationships we share with our furry friends, so they'd rather keep things simple, but as always, life has a funny way of throwing a spanner in the works (or in this case, a bone in the park).
As their dogs play together, Frank and Percy discuss everything from the weather to their shared interests, but can Frank, a widowed schoolteacher, and Percy, a somewhat radical elder statesman, both realise that new love can be worth taking risks for, or will they let the sleeping dogs lie?
