Pretty Marijke Monti and over-achieving and nerdy Lily Spencer have little in common, except that neither feels successful when it comes to love. Marijke can't get her boyfriend to say "I love you," and Lily can't get a boyfriend at all. When the girls end up together at a late-night showing of Titanic, sniffling along with the sinking ship, they realize that their love lives could and should be better. This sparks an idea: Why can't life be like a movie? Why can't they create perfect romantic situations? Now Marijke and Lily have a budding friendship and a plan: to act out grand gestures and get the guys of their dreams. It seems like fun at first, but reality turns out to be much more complicated. They didn't take into account that finding true love usually requires self-discovery first.
