Love Jacked

Feature Film: Romantic Comedy, 2018 – 95 minutes

The story centres on MAYA, a headstrong 28-year-old with artistic ambitions – a strong contrast to what her father ED wants: a dutiful daughter to run the family store. Ed is shocked when Maya takes her assertions of independence a step further and decides to travel to Africa for inspiration and returns with a fiancé who is not quite what he seems.
