Synopsis

dot the i is a love triangle, a dark comedy with a twist. The story centres on three characters: Carmen, a fiery Spanish girl about to get married; Barnaby, her posh fiancé with dark ambitions; and Kit, a struggling actor who tears up their relationship.

Carmen meets Kit on her hen night - in a kiss arranged by the maitre d' at the restaurant, according to a French tradition. It's a very good kiss. Too good. It's chemical, passionate, and very dangerous.

So she runs.

Torn between her safe, secure fiancé and the chance at gut-wrenching passionate love, Carmen is in a state of indecision. She avoids her heart, and goes with her head - and marries Barnaby. Until she realises she's made a terrible mistake and runs from her wedding bed to Kit.

As the situation intensifies, Carmen embarks on a journey in which she'll be forced to learn that things are never quite what they seem. This twisted tale toys with illusion and reality, passion and artifice.
