Synopsis: Maya (turning 30) is a headstrong daughter with artistic ambitions – a strong contrast to what her father wants: a dutiful daughter to run the family store. Maya takes her assertions of independence a step further and travels to Africa for creative inspiration and is set to return with a South African fiancé. But when she catches her fiancé cheating on her, she enlists the help of a stylish, kind-hearted pool hustler to pose as her fiancé to save face in front of her father. And he won't let his ignorance of South African culture get in the way of him helping this smart, charming and broken-hearted girl.

LOVE JACKED will be preceded by the short film, EMMY
