It’s a conventional love story. Danny falls in love with the bubbly, quirky Bella. She’s a little unorthodox, but he doesn’t mind. She brings him out of his shell, he makes her laugh with his cute awkwardness.

There couldn't possibly be any ulterior motive....could there?

Watch as their relationship blossoms over shots of sustainable coffee, plans for their future, and a business proposition that Danny just can't refuse.
