SMOTHERED

Will they? Won't they? Should they? Shouldn't they? Smothered, is a not so typical rom-com. Starring Danielle Vitalis and Jon Pointing in a tale of two worlds colliding, where romance blossoms but the pressures of modern dating linger.

Sammy is a fiercely independent young woman who is done with dating apps, sick of immature men, and here for a good time. Tom has never been inclined to swipe left or right; he's a settled man with a warm heart but carries his fair share of baggage. On a night out, the two strangers meet, and end up singing out their drunken souls in a karaoke booth. Then the inevitable happens. (They hook up). 

What seems like a great idea at the time, the strangers agree to have a no strings attached affair for three weeks - but on the condition that they never speak again. Sounds simple, right?  However, what was supposed to be a few weeks of great sex, pasta in bed and first names only, the sparks flying around them cannot be ignored. But Sammy soon makes a shocking discovery that there is another woman in Tom's life... his six-year-old daughter Ellie.
