ALONE: A LOVE STORY is an intensely relatable tale of heartbreak and hope that taps into the loneliness inside all of us. No matter how many times love kicks her in the shins, Parise doesn’t give up on hope or on herself. The only thing to do once you’ve hit bottom is to swim back up!
Michelle Parise has been a producer for CBC Radio and Television for over two decades. Born and raised in Toronto in a gigantic Italian immigrant family, Michelle was surrounded by storytellers, and as a child she wrote hundreds of short stories about her life. When she was 11-years-old she wrote a feminist novella in response to a book she’d taken issue with on the Grade 7 reading list. The teacher made it part of the curriculum in the years following. Her commitment to honest storytelling started early, is what we’re getting at, and is part of everything she creates, continually striving to make connection through shared experience.
