Buffalo 8 Distribution has picked up U.S. rights to The Fall, a romantic drama from writer/director Shaun Hart (Del Playa).

Jocelyn Hudon stars in the feature as Lacey Huxley, a 30-year-old woman living with her grandparents in the small town of El Castillo, California, who gets a chance at love when she meets a ruggedly handsome Australian (Thomas Cocquerel) with a heart of gold. But their budding relationship is complicated by the return of Lacey’s ex-boyfriend, played by Jeremy Sumpter, and his southern belle fiancé (Cassandra Scerbo) who move to town and trigger memories and longings, from the past.
