Your next one might be closer than you think . . .

Tara loved Colin at first sight. Colin loved Tara at first fight. That’s when they knew they were meant for each other.

But after six years, their marriage has started to crumble. Unable to recapture the spark they once had, it seems it’s all over. Until they meet their 100% match on a controversial new dating app – Fling.
