In the movie, Karen Pittman plays Allison, who is living in Tuscany and has come to a crossroads in her life. When her two friends (played by Erica Ash and Joyful Drake) come to visit, the reunion causes each woman to reexamine the state of her own life and relationships.
According to a synopsis from the network, “While they have different personalities and perspectives, they know each other’s truths and help to make life-changing decisions.”
Pittman shared a photo on Instagram promoting the movie.
“Fall in love with your fresh start,” she wrote in the caption.
