Such A Winter’s Day

Release date: September 1, 2024

Six decades after leaving his hometown of Saint John, New Brunswick, to follow his passion, Hank Lowman now spends most days sitting on the same bench in Kings Square as winter approaches. At a quick glance one sees an old man down on his luck possibly impacted by a global pandemic, an economic downturn and a severe housing crisis.

But not everyone just passes by. Liam, a young man on his lunch breaks from the Imperial Theatre, Bruce, a city works employee, Gloria, a local artist and lonely, vulnerable Pearl are just a few who stop and sit awhile, take the time to listen, notice his piercing blue eyes and uncover so much more.

Such a Winter’s Day discovers the complicated and beautiful veneer of one person’s life while at the same time celebrating the meaningful arc of social change and evolving gay rights. This is a story of challenge, ambition, love and heartbreak and a story of acceptance, forgiveness, friendship and hope.
