TIED INTO ME tells the love story in Venice between an adventure traveler and his beloved Gina: his floating home. 

When Daryl arrives in Venice from his home country of Ireland, he decides to live on a boat as a way to best connect with the Venetian community. But when a flood hits the city, his beloved boat, Gina, sinks and takes all of Daryl’s possessions with her.

The film chronicles Daryl’s adventure to rescue Gina from the waters despite the many obstacles he has to face. We witness the Venice community gathering around Daryl and helping him in his endeavor to save his home. 

TIED INTO ME opens up a timely discussion about how a crisis can reveal our true vision for how we choose to live and the importance of facing adventure and adversity together with our chosen community in whatever country we choose to live.
