The owner of a refurbished-trash shop, Jessica Dump, serendipitously meets a forlorn dog lawyer, Todd Barkley, and the two fall in love... However, their love is put to the test when Jessica's quest to find her missing father forces her to look inward in this 'not-quite-Hallmark' romantic comedy. Love Dump is the 2021 winner of "Best Comedy Feature" in The Great Canadian Comedy Film Festival.
