4 intertwined stories explore the notion of love in a hotel, how important love is, to what extremes we go to make it happen, but in difference situations and circumstances, the outcomes may be more than what we bargain for.
Information for the Audience:
Inspired by an unfortunate turn of true events in the past decade, close friends have fallen in love, deeply. Love has brought them the best happy memories of their lives, yet as time went by, things beyond their control led to a breakdown in their relationships. Some managed to salvage this love, others broke up, yet some are left on the edge.
Some may deny it, but there is a need for all of us to love, or be loved.
This film laments how important love is to everyone of us, to what extremes we go to make it happen, but in difference situations and circumstances, the outcomes may be more than what we bargain for.
