About The Movie:
Alana (Toubia) is a young Chicago app developer, hoping to land funding for her latest project. When her perfect-on-paper boyfriend suddenly proposes, Alana accepts, though she can’t help but feel that something is missing in their relationship. Yearning to share the news of her engagement with her estranged dad, Micah (Christian), Alana takes a trip to her coastal Florida hometown. There, she learns that Micah, a local innkeeper, has been struggling to maintain his seaside lodge. As she reconnects with him and falls in love with the town, Alana happens upon her long-lost ex-boyfriend, Kai (Maden). When Micah’s inn is chosen to host a local festival, Alana and Kai wind up working side-by-side to prepare for the event. Before long, romantic feelings resurface. But when a lucrative business offer beckons her to return to the city — and her fiancé unexpectedly shows up in town — Alana finds herself at a crossroads, wondering which direction her life should take.
