Funny and contemporary love story for the teenagers of today. Sometimes it's better to connect in reality than connect over apps... Light-hearted romance about being yourself.
Joe has never been 'cool' or 'hot' - he'd rather slog over a brand new recipe than spend hours obsessing over an Instagram image. When dating app Mate Match spreads through the school like wildfire, suddenly Joe has got to learn the rules of the dating game and thankfully big sister Georgia and her boyfriend Aaron are on hand to teach him everything he needs to know. And it seems the trick to success is to lie - about being in a band, about his hobbies (no cooking to be mentioned!), even his name. But when Joe gets matched with self-obsessed stunner Tania, his lies look set to unravel fast.
