Brigit, Odd Couple, From Shelterbelt With Love

* What sounds good when it feels like you’ve been pushing snow around every few hours? Sitting snug in an Irish pub with a bartender named Dev (Scott Kurz), sipping some stout and eavesdropping on Connor (Kevin Barratt) and Maeve (Laura Leininger) as they sort out life-changing decisions.
