Antigua's first feature film is a romantic comedy that tells the story of Lovelyanne 'Luv" Davies and her struggles to adjust to life on a small island following her return to Antigua from Canada. It follows her professional turmoil and personal drama, including being caught in an unexpected love triangle.

The film itself was made by real-life husband and wife team Howard and Mitzi Allen whose production company, HAMA Films, has been making television series and films in Antigua for over 15 years. One of their other films “The Skin” is also being screened as part of this 2015 Caribbean Summer Season of films in London.

The film also features British actress Julie Hewlett.

To add extra spice, the screening of this romantic film will take place on Howard and Mitzi's 23rd wedding anniversary!
