IT ISN'T ALWAYS LIKE THE MOVIES . . .
For the last four years, Nick's life has been picture-perfect.
He's been working his dream job as a film projectionist and he's been dating Ellie, the love of his life and the coolest woman he's ever met. It took a while, but this hopeless romantic finally found a love story to rival the big screen.
Until, one day, Ellie moves out.
Stunned by the end of their cinematic romance, Nick rewinds to the first night they met. Maybe if he can freeze-frame their happiest moments, he can work out why Ellie had to leave him behind.
Before the credits roll, will Nick become the hero of his own romantic comedy, or is it finally time for him to step out of the frame?
