Caveman’s Valentine

Romulus Ledbetter lives on the edge. The view is incredible.


105 min

Romulus is a mentally ill troglodyte living in a New York City park. He’s also a gifted composer and the father of a city cop.

On Valentine’s Day, he discovers the frozen body of a young man left in a tree outside his cave. The police dismiss the man’s death as an accident, but Romulus believes the killer is a friend of the dead youth, who is claiming that David Leppenraub, noted avant-garde photographer, murdered him.

Determined to discover the truth, Romulus manages to get an invitation through a former friend to perform one of his compositions at Leppenraub’s farm. What unfolds thereafter is a twisted tale of mystery, deception and a man’s struggle against his own mind.
