About The Movie:
Middle-school teacher, Kerri Fox (Vandervoort), a favorite among her students, assigns a project in her class where each student must create and run his/her own small business. Thirteenyear-old Clara Martinez (Mia Quaranta De La Rosa) decides to put her vast matchmaking skills to the test and becomes Cupid Clara, much to the chagrin of her newly single father, David (Gonzalez). As the weeks progress and Cupid Clara begins to flourish, Kerri gets more than she bargained for when Clara sets her sights on her newly single teacher as a potential match for her divorced dad. Can these two opposites really attract, and will they become yet another successful match for Cupid Clara?
