Modern Romance is a Romantic Comedy navigating dating in the technical age. Taking place in a cafe, our Barista is transitioning from man to woman, running the show from behind the counter.
Safia, not exactly a patron, lives upstairs and frequently comes in to use the bathroom. She is madly in love with her best friend Charlotte, aka – Charlie who’s been filling a void in her heart by going on countless of pointless online dates.
Adrian is juggling a few dates per day himself. He’s trying to remember their names and maintain his masculinity in this slowly turning feminine world.
Modern Romance touches on topics of love, dating, LGBTQ lifestyles, polyamory, broken toilets and the water shortage in Capetown. Seriously. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, but just don’t text your ex.
