Lya Guerra writes-

Hi John and Joey,
I met the two of you at Pleasant Street Tea last year and told you a little about the film I was working on
called THE LOVE PART OF THIS. I can’t believe it, but it’s almost done.
I wanted to let you know that it will be screening at the Cape Ann Community Cinema on July 21st!  – So I better be done with it.
The website is thelovepartofthis.com . Any chance of the site going up on GoodMorningGloucester would be more than great.
Let  me know if I can get you any more information.
I hope I’ll see you guys there. I’m really excited about it.
All the best from Oslo!

In the early 1970’s, Grace Schrafft and Grace Moceri left their respective husbands with their infant children in tow to be together. Grace Moceri is the responsible one, the one who makes sure the bills are paid and the doors are locked. Grace Schrafft is the free spirit that everyone in town knows and loves. The two Graces are deeply rooted in their hometown of Gloucester, Massachusetts.

Grace and Grace made a life together for 37 years. The Love Part of This explores their meeting, their ensuing love and their struggles being a couple. The Graces share their stories, both separately and together. We also hear from an ex-husband, their two children, the town pastor and a family friend.

After the unexpected death of one of the Graces, the footage becomes an uncanny document. Suddenly, all the words about their lives together take on a finite quality, as the remaining Grace goes through the process of grief. It is heartbreaking, funny and extremely moving.
