Embracing the casual flings that go hand in hand with her artist colleagues/friends. Whilst having a great support circle in the form of her three best friends from college.

Leo is just another customer at the coffee shop, ordering the same coffee each day. Not one for conversation or smiles. Marianne is shocked when he chats to her one day, bumping into each other later in the day Leo asks her if she would be interested in a small acting gig – pretending to be his girlfriend at his friend’s bridal shower. Thinking it would be a great way to earn some extra cash she agrees, Although when she reads the email Leo sends over with all the details and backgrounds on his friendship circle she is worried that she isn’t going to be able to pull it off.

The bridal shower goes off without a hitch, although she wonders why he is friends with some of the people. Not wanting the night to end they head out for a drink and end up hooking up. Feeling bad about it Marianne attempts to hide from Leo when he comes into the coffee shop for the next week. However, he emails her and asks if she’ll attend the wedding and debates whether this is a good thing or not. Things are far from straightforward with flirty friends and miscommunications – will it all end in tears?
