“Dear Rocco…Love, Lucy” chronicles the developing relationship between two people who, after a brief encounter, begin a long-distance correspondence via the personae of their dogs. They are surprised to discover a new depth of feeling made possible by the protection of distance and anonymity provided by their letter-writing, which addresses a shared need for comfort, companionship and change.
