Is it a question of the choices you make...or the chances you take?

Joel seems like the epitome of a proper grown-up. He's a successful TV scriptwriter who is still in love with his childhood sweetheart, yet he's falling apart at the seams. Searching for what's true, Joel decides to make good on an old promise and heads home to reconnect with his best friend Theo. Except they haven't actually spoken since that fateful accident thirteen years ago.
One of them is keeping a secret, and the other is living a lie. So begins their journey to fulfil a promise they made way back when to walk all 184 miles of the Thames Path in order to reclaim the relationship they lost, and find their way back to who they really are.
When We Were Young is a touching story about friendship, change, and wanting to go back when you know you need to move forward.
