Esther ... Kananu Kirimi
Spike ... Jamie Dodds

Spike, a 15-year old runaway, is given a home by Esther, a young woman with mental health problems. With Spike's support, Esther gains confidence to sing in a Jazz club, but the voices that haunt her threaten their fragile existence.
Spike appears to be the stronger of the pair, but mistreatment of the neighbours' baby reminds him of his own past and the secrets that make him just as vulnerable. This is a story of the healing power of unconditional love.

SMALL LOVE was given a cinema premiere on 16th August 2001 at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

SMALL LOVE had its UK TV broadcast premiere on Scottish & Grampian Television on the evening of Wednesday 24th October, 2001.
The ratings for this broadcast were the highest for STV/Grampian's autumn 'Newfoundland' series of drama productions.
